the Pacific Northwest
Limited run of these prints. When they're gone, they're gone.
All prints are 20 x 30.
A portion of the proceeds of each print sold will be donated to charity. In the future, each collection will be paired with a different charity.
While each of these prints mean something to me, photographs are subjective. Rather than telling you why I chose them, I will tell you about the moment and give you the space to experience each of them personally.
FOXY PRINTS vol.1 charity: PARSA
PARSA (Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Support for Afghanistan) is a NGO that builds healthy Afghan Communities with a focus on helping disadvantaged women and children. They do this in 3 ways:
- Building economies for women. PARSA empowers women through economic means. They market quality products made by Afghan women, while creating a national network of women-run businesses.
- Building healthy families. They offer training for social workers and caregivers of orphans, disabled people, and battered women.
- Building youth leadership. PARSA focuses on initiatives, like Afghan Scouts, that hone leadership skills. The Scouts partner with local police to engage in community outreach and community service projects.
I am lucky enough to call the PNW home. I am fortunate enough to know that I am safe and have access to a wide range of opportunities. I have chosen to donate to PARSA to help women and children living in a war-torn country with no sense of guaranteed safety and highly restricted access to opportunities to better their situations. While I am fortunate enough to be where I am, these women and children did not have a choice. A portion of every purchase made will go towards improving their homes and lives.
FOXY PRINTS FAQ
Why such a small collection?
Too many options makes the decision process incredibly difficult and can even lead to buyer's remorse.
“Even if we manage to overcome the paralysis and make a choice, we end up less satisfied with the result of the choice than we would be if we had fewer options to choose from." - Barry Schwartz
Why only one size?
In addition to the paradox of choice applying here, composition is incredibly important because it can drastically change the feeling of a photo. For example, a more square crop will feel different than a wider crop. A lot of thought went into each of these photos and I believe they're at their best in a 20x30.
How often will you be releasing volumes?
I won’t have scheduled volume releases for two reasons: 1) I will never sell a print just for the sake of selling a print and 2) I will never sacrifice quality over quantity.
When I feel a volume has enough oomph, I’ll release it.
How do I know you will actually donate a part of the proceeds to charity?
I’ll send you a sexy selfie of me with a copy of the donation receipt and that day's newspaper.
