United Against Ebola By Feigenfrucht-d89o7sh by makepictures

I am deeply privileged to have one of my photographs included in this remarkable collection of art compiled to raise money for the fight against EBOLA.  All the proceeds from sales will go to Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders).

Please take a look at the book and consider a purchase.  You can find links to a full page-by-page preview and a further explanation of the project here:

United Against Ebola: The Book!Dear friends, we are happy to announce (finally!) the release of the book United Against Ebola

Mundano is a street artist from Brazil.  He has initiated a project, Pimp My Carroca, through which artists rebuild and decorate the carts used by recyclers in Brazilian cities.  These workers are not accorded sufficient dignity or social resources but they contribute essential service in reducing global waste of recyclable materials.  This project combines concern for ecology, outreach to the working poor, social action by artists and participation from all sectors of city life. It calls attention to people we all know and too often ignore. And it allows us to pay respect to them.

I recently met with Mundano in the DeviantArt offices in Hollywood where he discussed involving the world community of artists in this project so it can expand to encompass recognition and aid for all "recyclers" in all of their various circumstances and activities everywhere across the globe. More of this will come later. 

But for now, I simply wanted to express solidarity as an artist by calling attention to this gentleman in Greenpoint, Brooklyn found working on a Sunday last weekend.

Thank you or favouring my Robin Williams 'tribute'. It's all I've done that has anything to do with the great man. LA is a main center of film production and I have taken an interest in film, obviously. The extent of this interest may be judged by looking at the film sub folder in 'SF fantasy'… .
