Hello everyone :)
I'm creating this fundraiser to help my artwork get noticed, and promote it at Trevisan International Art in Bologna, Italy.
You know it all. I quit my corporate job almost 2 years ago, and figuring out the way to become full time Fine Art photographer. I'm an avid artist and trying hard to promote and sell my Fine Art Photography. To really make a push I need to get my artwork showcased in the different parts of the world.
About 2 weeks ago I have got an invitation to participate in the project called “Little Treasures” in Bologna, Italy and I feel my project “Desert Treasures” is the right one to showcase there (4 pieces).
I have heard many times from many people that I shouldn’t give up on photography and now I’m asking for support from you, guys! It would mean the world to me if you'd support me on this journey to get my art the exposure I really feel it deserves.
I would really appreciate any contribution towards my dream coming true.
