美国家庭摄影项目 2015 US Family Photo Project 2015

美国之旅路线图更新

2015年6月,我们出发去了美国旅行,并完成一个摄影项目:住进美国的家庭,拍家庭写真。

June 2015, We had a trip to United States and finished a photography project. We stayed with local families and took family photos.

我们之前都是杂志图片编辑和摄影师,现居中国广州。2014年年末,我们搞了一个展览《我与我》,关于我们六年来的生活互拍。展览后,我们觉得是时候做一些改变,寻找适合自己的生活方式。于是,一起辞职了,到泰国、柬埔寨游荡两个月,作为新生活的开始。在旅途中,我们偶遇一位美国植物学家,他给我们讲述美国野外露营的故事,太好玩啦。所以,我们计划了一趟美国之旅。因为我俩准备成为家庭摄影师,所以希望在这趟旅程中完成一个关于家庭摄影的项目。

We were both photo editors and photographers before, now we live in Guangzhou, China. At the end of 2014, we had an exhibition of our photography work Me and Me, it is about our past 6 years life, in the way we take photos for each other. After the exhibition, we thought it was time to make some changes and to find another suitable life for us. Then we both resigned the jobs and travelled to Thailand and Cambodia for 2 months, made it as the new beginning of our new life. In the journey, we met a biologist from US, he told us many interesting things about camping in US. We were so interested in those things and we decided to plan a trip to US. At last, we also planned a family photo project during the journey, because we are both photographers.

最终我们完成了自驾一万六千公里的美国家庭写真之旅,穿越18个城市,游走9个国家公园,拜访并记录13个当地家庭。我们以家庭写真换住宿和露营的方式,穿越了美国。两人总共花费了约七万五千元。其中一万多元是通过预售摄影作品、纪录片和书的众筹获得。

At the end, we had a 16000 kilo meters road trip, travelled to 18 cities, 9 national parks and visited 13 local families in US. The total fee of the journey is about ¥75000 and about ¥10000 in the total is from the crowdfunding.
