Crowdfunding Campaign Launched in Support of Photography Series
Guerrilla photographers take a cue from Veronica Mars and appeal to fans to fund a new season of exploration
Toronto (I-Newswire) September 16, 2013 - Abandoned buildings and relics were the focus of a band of guerrilla photographers in Bravo's past series photoXplorers. The show followed these audacious urban adventurers as they explored forgotten buildings that once stood as bastions of social institutions, capturing breathtaking art amidst the neglect and decay and preserving history with their cameras.
Seeing the power of tapping their fans to help create further episodes, they launched an Indiegogo campaign on September 3rd. The campaign will run for 47 days and the team hopes to start principal photography for photoXplorers season 2 in November. This series is for people who have always been curious to see what is behind the barricades of abandoned buildings and have a burning desire to use their cameras to create art.
photoXplorers featured five avid photographers collectively known as the DK Photo Group (DKPG). Meet urban planner Sean Galbraith, real estate agent Laurin Jeffrey, archeologist Steve Jacobs, telecommunications sales director Matthew Merrett, and teacher Russell Brohier. The photoXplorers share a passion of bringing the past to light and preserving history through their photographs. Each with a keen eye and unique artistic talent, they visualize and interpret beauty within decay, giving voice to the silent testaments of our social heritage.
Moving from Europe to the US, the photoXplorers plan to turn their lenses on the forgotten hulks of the rust belt. From coal breakers to steel mills, they will explore the American manufacturing heartland - if they can raise the money. Season 2 of photoXplorers may take the viewers from New York state to Ohio, Pennsylvania to Connecticut and West Virginia to Michigan. Cheap motels and even cheaper food will fuel the 5 adventurers and their 2-man crew. They will come back with hours and hours of HD footage that, with the magic of editing, will eventually become 144 minutes of the most riveting television and web content.
