Welcome to the 50-Nifty.com project. Forty point out capitols down and only ten to go!
Hi I’m Edward Crim, specialist photographer educator amateur historian, and artwork critic in Saint Louis, Missouri. My buddy and co-producer, Paul Heirendt and I require your aid to place our project about the top! The intention of our project is to present students and instructors free significant excellent educational sources on our 50 point out capitols. The 50-nifty.com team has visited and photographed 40 of our point out capitols (that is eighty %, for you young students and good arts majors)! You can assistance us insert the other ten and entire our coverage of all fifty point out capitols!
I was smitten by the point out capitols bug about 10 decades in the past, when one of my kids had to do a fourth grade presentation on our point out. Naturally we went seeking on line to locate some images to use in the report, but at that time there weren’t any great photographs we could use!
At that position, minor noticing what I was acquiring myself into, I decided to go myself and photograph every single of our nations point out capitols, as well as our national capitol in Washington, DC. At to start with it was stop-overs on relatives vacations, but it was not extensive ahead of the point out capitols project took on a daily life of it’s own. It turned very clear to me that every single point out property is considerably much more than just a building. Just about every capitol, by its heritage, artwork, architecture, and openness to guests, reveals something of the character of every single point out. You could simply call it a temperament exam of types.
So here’s where by we are currently: I’ve visited and photographed 40 of our 50 point out capitols. You can see them on line at 50-Nifty.com.
Somewhere together the way, while, I understood this project was considerably even larger than just photos could express, so we have released an educational source Site for students and instructors to demonstrate them not only the artwork and architecture of these historic properties, but also the heritage and value in our American daily life.
An important extra source we are producing for 50-Nifty.com is a documentary showcasing our point out capitols. It will present the back again-tale for numerous of the images I’ve previously taken, but also interviews with point out officials, powering the scenes tours of these wonderful properties, and intriguing snippets from their heritage.
