Light Work + Kickstarter

Light Work is happy to work with the crowd-funding platform Kickstarter to offer a curated page of interesting photography projects from our community and beyond!

The latest addition to our curated page is by 2011 Light Work Artist-in-Residence and now Associate Director Shane Lavalette. Shane has just launched an exciting Kickstarter campaign to help produce a photobook project to follow his upcoming “Picturing the South” exhibition at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta.

Help fund Shane’s project here, and see more curated projects by visiting the Light Work Kickstarter page.


If you have a Kickstarter project you’ve launched, let us know about it!
