Story of a calendar

Babbus du temple

One cannot imagine the workload there is in editing for the first time a calendar as special as this one, especially when one is alone to manage this all, the search for photographers, the selection of pictures, all the related emails, the printers offers, the formatting...

When I started working on this project, I found motivation and energy in thinking about the great challenge it is, but most of all because I could finally do more for the children and young women in difficulty who I want to help in India, where education lacks, to give them the tools for their independence.

I must have contacted a dozen photographers that I had thought of, some never answered, others let me know they were not participating, and at last, and for my greatest joy, five photographers accepted. I will be introducing them soon in another blog post, I promise.

Our 2017 calendar with guests' project

Udaipur elephant statue

This summer I was challenged with a calendar project, to federate photographers with a portfolio of pictures of India and linked to India for our 2017 calendar. I loved the idea, thought about it a lot and started writing project details and figuring out who the photographers could be, with a few I knew I would start with.

As it has always been important to me, all calendar sales benefits will go directly to education projects in India, helping disfavored children, orphan girls and young single women in difficulty.

The calendar will gather 13 pictures, 4 to 6 of which by Joanie Waelti, the 7 to 9 others donated by guest photographers with a close relationship with India.

The name of participant photographers will be mentioned on the calendar, on or near their picture(s), together with one other contact detail (eg. Website URL or social media profile). Also there will be a link to their website or blog or other from the recommended links page on picturesofindia.org.
