If you live or are planning to be in the area this Summer, please take a look!
I am excited to announce a Kickstarter campaign to help raise funds for my first book!
For those that aren’t familiar, Kickstarter is an “all or nothing” funding model. In other words, if I don’t achieve my goal my project will not get funded. So I can only make this happen with your help! Any amount of support you can offer is deeply appreciated.
In exchange for your kindness and commitment to this project, I’m offering a range of awards in return for pledges starting at just $12. There’s everything from a unique bookmark made from a strip of an archival print, to a digital music download, a screenprinted tote bag, a pre-order for the limited-edition book to come (signed copies too), as well as archival exhibition prints of various sizes! There’s a little bit of something for everyone and a few surprise rewards that will pop up throughout.
If you feel comfortable, please take a moment share this link with anyone you think might be interested (via e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, etc.). Getting the word out is a big part of the success of this project.
Also, if you haven’t already be sure to connect with me on Facebook to follow along.
As a ‘thank you’ to those of you who are following along I’m giving away a FREE copy of the America Now catalog (photographs by Shane Lavalette, Laura McPhee, Alec Soth, Zoe Strauss, Daniel Cheek and Ben Huff). I’ll also be including a surprise in the package… Yes, it just might be another photobook!
Visit my Facebook page for details on how to enter. A winner will be selected on Monday.
Again, thanks for tuning in!

For those that aren’t familiar, collect.give is a website which brings together a selection of photographs by both emerging and established photographers, with all print sales contributing 100% to charity. In total, the website has currently raised over $25,000 for compelling organizations.
Proceeds from each sale of my print will be donated to Food for Life Vrindavan, a fantastic organization that supports education and food distribution, among other things, in Vrindavan, India. When the print edition sells out, this will offer a total of $1,125 to the organization!
Please pass this on to anyone who may be interested, it would be great to see the edition sell out.
UPDATE: My edition is now sold out! Thanks to those who purchased prints and supported the cause. If you’re just reading this, I encourage you to explore the website and discover the other available works.
From Eliot Dudik, his self-published book Road Ends in Water.
Edition of 1,000

I’m happy to hear that my work was selected as an “Honorable Mention” for Fine Art Photo Series in this year’s New York Photo Awards. Thanks very much to the fine jury (who waded through over 700 entries in this category alone) and congratulations to the winners and other mentions.
