Woman Gets Grant To Photograph Facebook Friends

Raise your hand if you knew there was grant money out there so you could travel the world taking pictures of your Facebook friends. eek!

In the last eight months, I have raised almost $20, 000, completed over 100 portraits, photographed 163 Facebook "friends", traveled to 11 states across the country and nearly 50 cities/towns. I have traveled by plane, train, subway, bus, car, bike and on foot. I continue to be surprised by the number of people, especially (the real life) total strangers, who have opened their homes to me, sharing their lives, their stories, their food, their gardens and their families while allowing my camera to document it.
