photo exhibition: help wanted

HELLO ALL I NEED ONE AND ALL HELP,

in april a group of fine young friends and I are exhibiting together our photographic works on body and reflectivity.  my pieces will deal with eating disorders and awareness as well as empowerment for your own body.  

I want to know if anyone is interested in helping:

  • I need females AND males…this disease does not discriminate
  • you do NOT need to be struggling with it to help
  • you have to be comfortable in posing either nude, semi nude (bras and underwear is fine) and I might not show your face in the photographs, if that helps determine your willingness to help
  • buffalo area
  • **if anyone is also interested in helping with an audio portion I would appreciate it: it’s audio f confessions of ones own struggles with an eating disorder, issues with food or if a close loved one you know has or is struggling OR be part in stating a statistic.  the idea is for the audience to be able to put on a pair of headphones to intimately hear these because its powerful.  you’ll remain anonymous
  • also people who are proud of their body are especially encouraged too- for a portion of photos will show strength and hope.

message/ask a question to let me know if you are interested in helping if youre in the buffalo area and a way i might be able to contact you

i want this to be powerful, honest, as well as show courage, hope, and perserverance

thank you,

melissa

i’ll post more when i cover more on this
