The other day I received an email from Khaaliq Thomas, a freelance photographer based in the metropolitan Detroit area whose moving video on “The Hero Project” moved me to share his vision. The following is from Khaaliq’s website.
“The Hero Project”
A Photographic Study of A Single Father Home
For the past year I’ve been working on a photo documentary concentrating on single / custodial fathers households. I’m hoping to get your help in spreading the word about the project.
Purpose of The Project
The project will challenge the belief of fathers being incapable, unwilling, and or inadequate in performing responsibly, productively and lovingly as a single / custodial parent.
Attention will be given to the dedicated ability of these dads and their commitment to raising productive children and supplying a stable home on their own. The finished project will consist of a 110 page full color photo book. I’m using Kickstarter to raise the funds to search for more dads through advertising, print and design of the book and setting up exhibitions of the final project.
How You Can Help
I need your help in spreading the word about the March 7, 2013, Kickstarter fundraiser in order to get the project to the public and share in the experience of a single father household through this project. I’m asking for your help in support of the project by spreading the word on your websites, blogs or anyway you can.
Thank you –
