The Problem

over 5 years ago I started a community photography club in the small area I live in. We show the beauty of our valley and all around. We hope to show others the beauty of the world so they don't want to trash our earth. One of the things that are our goal is to encourage the young artist in elementary and high school is to believe in themselves and have the confidence to follow their dreams and be the artist they want to be. These days children grow up with drugs pushed at them, living in poverty and abuse right here in America. We want to help them see beyond that and to greater things that they can do. We are a village in this country and helping the children starts with the adults rebuilding their own lives and learning to follow their own dreams so they can teach the youth.

Our Plan

My and our photography project of the Banana Belt Photography Club of the Illinois Valley will and Has encouraged adults to be the best of themselves and follow their dreams. As I stated above over 5 years ago I started a photography club in the valley I live in. The photography has encouraged many adults to hone their art and self-confidence so they feel able to show other adults and children to do the same and show the beauty of the world we live in. We are still working on elementary and high schools helping to start photography clubs for the youth.
