Photographer and rebel rouser Hunter-Savoy Jaffe is looking to fund her upcoming photo book about her outlaw and bank robber uncle, D. Coffey. He recently burnt his house down. Or his partner did it. Who knows.
I’ve posted about the project I’ve been working on in the South before so some of you may know whatsup - for those who don’t, I have been photographing in the South for nearly five years now on a project with the working title of D.Coffey. The project uses the American South as a background for a dive deep into the mysticism and specific familial blood ties and lawless events that took place on the land in histories past.
The other day I received a phone call from my Uncle, who is a central point within this project, relaying a message that his house had caught fire and burnt to the point of being unsalvageable. Please help me fund the unforeseen and crucial trip down to the South - I cannot do it alone on such a short notice! Time is of the essence in that the fire department is due to clear the house from the land any day now! I must get there before they do in order to photograph and collect ephemera from the wreckage!
ALL CONVERSATION, SHARING, REBLOGGING, AND DIRECT FUNDING IS HELP SO PLEASE DO WHAT YOU CAN ~* I WOULD VERY MUCH APPRECIATE IT!

I liked that she wrote around the edges of her shoes. I remember doing the same thing as a young boy.
