Support my film photography documenting Greece and recieve a photo book with quality photographs.
My name is Peter Endrody, I am a freelance photographer based in Hungary. I have more than 25 years experience as a freelance photographer. This campaign is intended to promote my previous work in a form of a photobook. The work is about everyday life in Greece, a project I did when I lived in Greece. Through the contributions made I am hoping to help fund my future projects of documentary / photojournalism projects. As a freelance photographer it is a challenge to get out there and promote one's work. By creating this photobook project I am hoping to be able to present my work in Art Galleries and specialised book stores, which would be a huge benefit for me.
What We Need & What You Get
In order gain more exposure I am planning to print 50 copies of my book and place them in different venues where people can view them. The copies are 7x7 inch in diameter and 48 pages total. Each print would cost approximately 18 USD. For premium backers large (30cm x 40 cm) photographic print selected from the best photos of the book will be sent along with a signed copy of my photobook to anywhere in the world. For every contributor a free copy of the book is sent. In case I don't reach my entire goal the funds will go into making as many copies as the gathered funds will allow.
In my past and future projects I intend to concentrate on subjects that have been less documented. This project of mainly colour photographs which was created more than 25 years ago documents some of Athens street life and shows a perspective of native city inhabitants. Shot entirely on 35 mm film (as no other technology had been around then) it is exceptional in a sense that it shows moments of life different from tourist snapshots and interest of tourism monuments.
Risks & Challenges
It would be positive to reach the initial goal for this project and to show previous century Greece through contemporary photography to as many art enthusiasts as possible. In order to achieve this I attempt to publish as many copies as possible no matter the what the outcome of campaign is going to be. I am also counting on likeminded people who care about projects like this.
