Dear CS photographers,

My name is Chiara.

I’m writing this post because I started one month ago a graphic project, helped by a friend of mine who’s a graphic, based on mixing old photos in black and white with new
ones, to be later auctioned for funding social projects, starting from my city, Bologna, in Italy.

Usually, all the photos I’m matching together have a critical component: for example, I have a photo of a group of friends on the seashore in late 60's to which I
added a background of a polluted beach of today…a protest as things are going now badly.

The new image is then printed on canvas in different sizes, starting from the smallest size of 20x30 cm.

For each project to be funded I’m creating at least 15 works, and my goal is to support a project every month: not just in Italy, but starting from here because I know
which associations need contributions and support to continue doing their wonderful projects.

Why am I writing on this group?

Because I constantly need new photos, both black and white (the family’s old ones), but also high-resolution new one, kindly donated by people who know and experience
daily the value of sharing-whether it is a space or ideas .

I hope you can help or spread the word through your friends...Please contact me via email to kiara_cp@libero.it, if you'd like to share a piece of your life and your work with me...

A presto,
