Who Do You #Respect?

Submit the Elder You Respect

to Be Apart of The Elders Project!

Here is a teaser for my project "The Elders"- a still photography and documentary project coming soon. Which elders do you ‪#‎respect‬? ‪#‎theeldersproject‬ ‪#‎aerphoto‬

No better way to celebrate ‪#‎tbt‬ than to introduce a project that has been on my heart for some time. My portrait and documentary project "The Elders" is a project that features those older than myself who have guided me as I make my way in this world. "The Elders" will soon feature the elders of others- uniting all our stories in one beautifully crafted documentation of a generation of people often overlooked. For a chance for your elder to be included in the documentary and portraits, Instagram and Facebook me a photo of you with your elder @andreaellenreed with a few sentences about why you ‪#‎respect‬ that person and what they have taught you. In order for your vote to count you must hashtag at least one word that describes them i.e. ‪#‎conviction‬, as well as include the following hastags: #respect ‪#‎theeldersproject‬ ‪#‎aerphoto‬ Anyone within the US is eligible. I will then fly (at my own expense) to meet your elder and tell their story of wisdom in "The Elders" documentary accompanied by a beautiful portrait. Only one will be chosen, so send me your best pic and your best story. As the stories pour in, I will share mine with you about my mom and why I #respect her so much. But for now, I will say I will always ‪#‎love‬ and #respect my mom for her‪#‎courage‬ and her ‪#‎strength‬! #theeldersproject #aerphoto ...For photos of "The Elders" visit andreaellenreed.com/the-elders
