"My Ireland" is a project that was created with the purpose of telling, through a "photo book-interview" the story of some Italians who decided to leave their homeland for Ireland looking for a job, a home, for a better future, in search of themselves. In this time of crisis, I want to tell how some men and women have found in Ireland due recognition for their professionalism, their desire to get involved, and how they found support in the institutions and in the communities where they live.
Since December 26, 2014 al January 4, 2015 I will be in Ireland, as well as to spend the Christmas holidays with my brother and his family, to give life to this project: to know, interview, photograph, hear stories that the players will want to tell me. As for the questions, not being a video interview but a photo interview, prepare in the next few days and will ship directly to the parties concerned. This will give me the opportunity for some of the 10 days I will be in Ireland, to devote myself exclusively to photo shoots with respondents agreeing on the timing. As far as possible I would like to photograph them in their simplest everyday life environments familiar to those working.
People who want to interview are those Italians who decided to build a new life in Ireland. Who has invested in a new business or simply those who have found a stable job or is looking for; who moved with his family or those who built it in Ireland. To know and to collect their stories photobook because through my photos and words may be told to the public is Italian and Irish.
The economic goal to be reached in 40 days, which will enable the project "My Ireland" is set at € 5,000.00 certainly a substantial figure but necessary.
If I were to reach this important milestone, the figure says will finance: moving to Ireland (rent a car and some nights in a B & B); buying a wide angle lens suitable for indoor and put the external views, printing of printed promotional campaign to help web & social project "My Ireland" (flyers, postcards, brochures, etc ..) printing 300/500 copies of the first book of photographs.
If in 40 days we will reach this figure the project will go through, otherwise it will remain only a dream. That's why you're so important with a small share from just 2 Euros, you will make it possible to realize a dream and be part of it too. How? Simply step with the payment to each of which corresponds to a particular prize and exclusive shall reserve my supporters.
In the sidebar of the page of my project you will find all the steps and the associated rewards.
