I’m so excited to be part of Danielle’s project; she’s super talented (as you can see from these photos) and genuinely connects with the people she captures. I know many of us are marginalized and misunderstood – so this is a huge opportunity to celebrate YOU, just as you are.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE: We’re looking for young, creative alternative youths living anywhere in the US. Please send a few details about you (such as the subcultures/styles you identify with), your full contact info (including phone and email), location (city/state), and at least 3 images of yourself.

EMAIL the above info to: Stephanie (weareverywell@gmail.com) AND Danielle (daniellelevitt@mac.com)

DATES & LOCATION: This is an ongoing project in the US; Danielle will figure out a time that works, and travel to you.

As you may know, I specialize in travel, fashion, and subcultures; credits include: The Today Show, Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern for Travel Channel, NHK Japan, Dutch Pepsi, Sony Australia, Canal Plus France, Norway TV (NRK), Belgium TV (VRT) and CNN International.

La Carmina and the Pirates, my coolhunting and consulting business, has been busy lately.

    Can two people send in a combined submission? As in, a friend and I would both like to send in a submission, but for photos we did a shoot together. Is that ok or do we each need an individual submission with individual pictures?
