The ADA Image Project

by Mary Lou Mobley

Images will be published in a coffee-table book, a 2015 calendar, and as individual prints. Additionally, at the end of the project key images will be made available for free to disability rights groups to use in their marketing and outreach campaigns.

There is some urgency as the campaign ends on September 28th. For a pledge of $10 or more, you can enter a dedication in the project’s coffee table book. At higher donation levels, you can sponsor a family with members with disabilities for a day-in-the-life or portrait-style photoshoot and prints or an album. And there are other incentives as well at different pledge levels.
