my friend carey is submitting her photo project for a contest:

http://www.nameyourdreamassignment.com/the-ideas/careykirkella/americas-visionary-changemakers/

i love her project idea and think if you are reading this blog, you’d love it too.

Her basic premise is this: We live in an age of change. My dream assignment is to photograph Americans who are innovative in making a positive impact on our world…and the images will help inspire others to “be the change they wish to see in the world”. -Ghandi.

She reminds me of me when i was younger. sooo passionate about photography and what it can do. younger only cuz she is younger than me. it’s exciting for me to see younger photographers truly dedicating themselves to the medium and the inspiration it can create. And… in the face of any economy, all the ‘get a real job’ comments (i personally have heard them all)… and all that. you go carey, and enjoy the whole journey, every second of it.

best of luck to her!
