Some of you may know this, some may not but without getting into a HUGE explanation about NFT’s and cryptocurrencies, I just wanted to let you know about a very special project I am currently working on.
When Dee had her seizure in August our world was turned on its ear, she’s fine now, though we are still in the dark as to what caused it in the first place. However, one of the biggest and most influential outcomes has been the loss of her license for at least 6 months.This meant that I became the solitary source of transportation for the family, which is fine, but it created a little divergence from my original plan for the fall.
I had extended stays booked in St. Brendan’s, the Southern Shore, the West Coast throughout August and into the fall to continue my work on Saltwater Cathedrals. The plan was to collect more material for shows, sales and an upcoming book project.
All that is now paused.
So, what to do?
Well, first, I entered in the wonderful world of NFT’s and through that have met a TON of talented world class photographers from around the globe. I have learned more in the past month than I had the past two years about the craft.
Second was the create a project a little closer to home.So, I am working on a collection of fine art photos collected through the Discovery Global Geopark.
This collection will be available to view and the purchase as NFT’s as of Oct 29th, 2022. There will be a secondary print market and possible show after as well.
Once the collection sells through ( fingers crossed ) I will be donating 10% of the total sales to the Geopark as a way of saying thanks.T
hanks for what you might ask?
Well, when battling with chronic pain and mental illness I “discovered” a refuge there. First along its many trails, and then, when my spinal injury prevented me from hiking, through the lens of my camera.
It literally saved my life and helped me find purpose.
Here are the first five photos from that collection.
I felt it was very important that every photo be different, yet, unmistakably part of the same collection.
Also, here is the link to the OpenSea Collection Page
Nothing much to see there yet, but the place has been set!
Oh, here’s another possible, if not for the main collection, a precursor…
