The project is on stand-by but not deadBy Marco Cortesi, on 22/10/2019 10:53

Hello everybody, I would like to inform that the project is not dead. I can understand that waiting could be irritating (I crowdfunded project too), but I had some «problem» on the way. The editor who was interested in publishing the book disappeared and the photographer I paid for the editing disappeared too. That means I need to do everything alone, and the cost will be higher as expected, but as I don’t want to ask for more money to the community, I just need more time to save money to invest on this project. I contacted a book designer a couple of years ago but asked many thousands euros (only for the design), so I had to skip. I also need to self publish the book, but, as you can imagine, this has a cost too. I could easily do a book just using an online service, print 20 books for the reward, but I prefer to wait and do something more interesting, first of all to me, but also to you. I will try to give extra reward as everything will be finish, to thank you for the patience.

During last years I also invested a LOT of time (and money) to grow LuganoPhotoDays, the photo festival I founded in 2012. I know this isn’t related to my Chernobyl project directly, but as you founded a photo book, maybe you’re happy to know there is this kind of festival too, where I also give visibility to other crowdfunded photo project.

I’m willing to answer to all your questions, also by email (maybe it’s easier than the comments). My contact is marco.cortesi@gmail.com

All the best and thank you again for your patience. Marco Cortesi
