A photographic record of Kentucky from 1935 to 2055 – a 120-year visual history created in forty year increments.
This second iteration of the Kentucky Documentary Photographic Project will take eight years to complete and, when finished, will be presented as a book, exhibitions, a permanent collection, and whatever other kinds of forms the Project adapts to. Our new team of young diverse photographers will be tasked with keeping the Project alive and producing a third iteration forty years from now.
It costs us almost $3,000 to put a photographer on the road for a week, including a salary of $1,000, travel expenses and post production time. We pay a researcher to investigate each county we go into to give our photographers leads and contacts. We pay a very small amount for office overhead, and very little else. Will you help us raise the funds to complete our vision?
The Kentucky Documentary Photographic Project is a non-profit ongoing enterprise making a contemporary visual record of Kentucky.
