    P.S. The vancouver John Bentley is the only one I can find.... I'll look more cause this guy does good interior work, but it sure doesn't look like bus-developed 8x10s from Mexico...

    Bring your road trip to Toronto , give me advance warning and I will set up a workshop group for you at Gallery 44- google them. Also I will introduce you to John Bentley.
    He and I met in a logging camp on Vancouver Island in the early 70's, since then he has lived in Toronto. He makes amazing Colour Pigment Prints.
    I think what you are doing is pretty cool. If I hadn't sunk every penny I have into my own business I would try to help financially.
    These people at Gallery 44 would be a very interesting landing point for you.
    As well Bill Schwab has photostock most years and the bus would really be a nice touch.

    I wish you well with this project.

    Depends on the girl friend and the job, I guess ...

    Glad to hear he is still going, though I can understand why the kick starter attempt did not work out. I think the two photogs needed to focus more on defining their artistic vision for the trip, as well as the ultimate outcome. The bus should have been a small part of it a means to well defined outcome. The art projects that are successfully funded clearly define their vision and outcome for the project. I am probably like many other Kickstarter patrons, I go to the video first and the description second. If the video does not define the outcome I move on. The video is the pitch, the description is what is in the folder that someone reads if the pitch is good. In all honesty I did not read his description because the outcome and photographic purpose was not clearly defined. I liked the bus though.
