The Aftermath Project Wins $15,000 NEA Grant

May 12, 2010

Rodrigo  That's the good news. The bad news is that an additional $15,000 is still needed in order to publish and distribute War Is Only Half The Story, Volume 3, featuring images by the 2009 winners of The Aftermath Grant, Asim Rafiqui and Louie Palu and finalists Saiful Huq Omi, Ami Vitale, Davide Monteleone, Andrea Bruce, Donald Weber, and Rodgrigo Abd.

To raise the remaining funds, The Aftermath Project is appealing for donations and selling prints by each of the grant winners and finalists. If you've ever thought you'd love to own an Ami Vitale image from Kashmir, or one of Donald Weber's images from Chernobyl, here is your chance. Prices have been greatly discounted, and range from about $400 to $1,000. Many of the prints are signed.

To view the images available, visit the home page of The Aftermath Project,www.theaftermathproject.org, and click on the PDF.

Sara Terry, founder of The Aftermath Project, is also appealing to past and prospective grant applicants. She writes, "To all you photographers who have applied, or hope to apply for an Aftermath grant, you probably know that we don't charge an application fee, and we intend to keep it that way. But any donation you can make — even $10 — will be a big help in keeping us going — so that we can help you tell the stories you're so passionately committed to."

Donations can be made through PayPal or by mailing checks to:
