Help expand our underwater photography programming by supporting our Kickstarter campaign today. To donate visit our project, Under the Surface.
Last summer, we did an experiment. After four years of being awed by the astonishing strength and artistry of the youth in our In a New Light therapeutic nature photography program, we decided to venture under the surface. Funded by a National Park Service grant, our intrepid teens created a stunning and unprecedented collection of underwater photos of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway. But even more importantly, the water brought out a level of skill, passion, and resilience that blew everyone away. The “New Light Under the Surface” experiment worked.
This year, we need your help to expand the world’s first and only therapeutic underwater photography program to accomplish the following goals:
1. Double the number of youth doing underwater photography by expanding our programming to the Northwest Passage girls’ facility.
2. Expand our expeditions to build image collections of our region’s beautiful lake ecosystems, including Lake Superior and its watershed.
3. Publish a hardcover coffee table book of images to share with the world.
We’d be honored if you’d join us in this mission.
