A word of thanks..

June 9th, 2011 by Rebekka in Uncategorized

In my last post,  I decided to go ahead and ask for help, to finance my latest project, the objective of which is to photograph myself in a specially designed dress at all the locations included in the weather forecast on the Icelandic National Radio.   You can read all about it here.
The response to this fundraiser went far beyond my expectations,  and I’m now just shy of 4000$.  As I mentioned in that post,  I was going to use Kickstarter to raise this money.
5000$ was the goal I had in mind, had I been able to use that platform (not available to me since I don’t have an American bank account)

To the 108 people who have thus far donated to this project,  I am absurdly grateful.  This project would simply be impossible without this support.  Thank you all.

Since I last wrote about this,  I’ve gone on two shorter trips, once alone (to photograph the lighthouse above) and one trip with my boyfriend to cover the weather stations on the Snæfellsnes peninsula.  So far we’ve now covered 26 locations of 62.  This will take a few months and a whole lot of driving before we’re done  ;)

If anyone would still like to contribute,  I’m still accepting donations.  As mentioned before,  15$ or more will entitle you to a PDF of the book once it’s finished.  50$ or more and you get five 12×17 cm prints of your choice from my website.  (Just send me a mailing address and links to your choices, alongside the donation)

Thanks again.
