Project: The Artist Series
documentaries on contemporary photographers
The Artist Series is an ongoing project documenting the very best photographers working today. Each episode is a short documentary filmed in the studio of the photographer and showcases their process and approach.
The project is completely funded from its audience. I’ve had the idea to produce this series for quite some time. Last year I decided to do a crowdfunding project to get the ball rolling. My goal was to fund one, maybe two videos and raise about $5,000. The campaign was wildly successful and I raised over $17,000. Viewing this as an opportunity, I’ve decided to put all of the money into the travel costs.
The first 3 videos are up and 6 more will be released in 2016.
