The Fallen Hereos Foundation - Angels is an artistic endeavor designed bring attention to, and support the families of soldiers who have lost loved ones because of this war we currently are fighting. Due to their tragedy, most of them lose virtually all the money the household had.
It`s scope is vast. But first let me explain why.
As it`s name implies, Angels are coming to the rescue in the form of fine art photography. The Angel of FREEDOM is depicted carrying an American Flag in the Presidio National Cemetery. One such beautiful portrait is in the walls of the Pentagon. As a prominent government official quotes, "The work displays outstanding skill, creativity, and thoughtfulness. It offers encouragement and support to our military and civilian workers, and those who visit the Pentagon. I want you to know all of us here at the Pentagon appreciate the time and effort you took. It is your spirit and that of all Americans that will see us through these difficult times."
You can see this fine art photography at the artists website www.kerryswank.com - then click the FREEDOM link.
Most of Kerry Swank`s photographs have no computerized alterations.
What strikes me the most are the handcrafted wings. For each Angel they are individually made. They wingspan is nearly 10 feet long, adorned with beautiful white feathers. The white gowns are flowing from a famous clothing designer and the models are gorgeous.
Each photograph uses the Silver Gelatin Process made famous by Ansel Adams and Edward Weson during the 1880`s. The printing process produces beautiful rich prints made from bright luminous whites, deep blacks, and a full compliment of tones in between. They are archivally mounted, signed, dated and named on the back and front. On Kerry Swanks Website, click on the CARDS link to see all the Angels then click on each portrait to enlarge and fully appreciate these works of art.
As the title implies, the Oscars and Golden globes has petitioned Kerry to make these Angels for their "gift baskets" handed out to actors during the awards show. $25,000 for each prestigious award show buys you name recognition affiliated with them and Kerry will do some promotion on the donaters behalf. It is peanuts for that price! The funding deadline for this is in November 2006, so hurry up and jump on board as soon as possible to show your support!
The Angels love fly around, especially if you support the Arts. For $3000. (US) to $23,000. (US) you can buy an Angel which will also provide another to a family in need (they can do whatever they want these pictures) and twenty-five percent of the proceeds goes to these families.
Also, the Angels, sculptures and a huge building is going through a governmental approval process to be the largest memorial ever, dedicated to our fallen servicemen and servicewomen!
These portraits will premier in December around Miami Beach, Florida. Please contact Kerry Swanks business representative, Anna Maija, at 305 766-3544, for an RSVP only (email for Anna is firstname.lastname@example.org) , for inquires.
Thanks from a supporter and Veteran, David Coronel.
