JPG Magazine: Blog: Calling all designers!

The Abandoned In Detroit story is submitted to JPG Magazine for Issue 12, which has a Fashion theme. The key photo for the story has been gathering votes. The story however could definitely use more support in the form of votes.

One of the other themes is Creative License. The magazine is making it pretty simple for designers to get into the swing of writing a story submission so it gets into the magazine. They wrote a blog post that offers a simple template for submitting your story for publication.

This is an IDEAL opportunity for Abandoned In Detroit to take a very noticeable position of publicity through getting MULTIPLE stories and photos published. So I'm appealing to the designers out there to go through the story submission process and post a few supporting photos. Check out the blog posting - it poses 7 easy questions as a template. Just fill it out, put up a photo in the Creative License theme and do it quickly. August 1 is the deadline for photos and stories to go into Issue 12.

Fashion In The Streets 2

uploaded by laverew.


I was out photographing Fashion In The Streets 2 at Campus Martius in the center of downtown Detroit and a couple of fellow photographers on the AID project were there. Thanks Larry Winn for catching me at the location. It was great to see you, meet your family and see Jonathan (Fiyar Photography) there as well. Check out Larry's photos on Flickr.

My photos from Fashion In The Streets 2 can be found on my website. You'll find three galleries to check out...

  • Fashions by Sharrone, featuring her new t-shirt designs, the "seabreeze" cruise wear line, her signature "skindeeper" line of denim with leather, and new elegant gowns featuring rabal fabric from Senegal.
  • Performers including the dancers of Thiosane Dance Company, actors for the play Choices, The Model Workshop with Lionesse singing, and two gospel singers.
  • People photos including the MCs and sponsors for the evening ranging from Arnold Mitsubishi (giving away a car), Northland Mall, and more.
The event is a membership drive for the Charles H Wright African American Historical Museum. For more information about Fashion In The Streets visit the website.
