Instructions for living a life;
Tell about it.
- Mary Oliver
While showing a friend the Photographers Without Borders website and pictures from my Kenya project, I came across the Krimmel-Salzburg assignment. With a strong desire to get involved again and the location being so close, I figured that it would be a perfect fit.
After discovering more information about the organization, I was even more motivated to apply for the project. Alpine Peace Crossing - Association for Social and Refugee Assistance (APC) is an independent and charitable support and peace initiative, based on the Jewish exodus over the Austrian Alps near Krimml (Salzburg) in 1947 and is dedicated to all refugees in the world.
APC has conducted a peace walk every year in June/July since 2007, following the path of the refugees in 1947. The hike leads from the Krimmler Tauernhaus over the summit of the Krimmler Tauern to Kasern in South Tyrol. My job will be to attend the gatherings and organization before the event, photographing the walk, and the celebration and reflection after.
I have decided to do something different this time around in terms of raising support. Every person who would like to help and donates $50 or more will receive a set of 5 travel photo postcards from me.
