Personal Projects are crucial in showing potential buyers how you think creatively on your own. I am drawn to personal projects that have an interesting vision or show something I have never seen before. In this revised column, I’ll include a link to each personal project with the artist statement so you can see more of the project. Please note: projects are found and submissions are not accepted.
Today’s post is to honor the life of Tim Mantoani and his work http://behindphotographs.com

We are profoundly saddened to announce the passing of our friend and photographer, Tim Mantoani.
Tim was an internationally acclaimed photographer, a dedicated husband, father, son, brother and friend. His numerous professional accomplishments are surpassed only by his love and generosity to everyone who knew him. Those of us who were lucky enough to know Tim have struggled to find a truly meaningful way to recognize his contribution to our lives.
Many of you know Tim’s son, Lucas, a bright, enthusiastic, young man. Though only sixteen, Luke is wise beyond his years, sharing Tim’s relentless pragmatism, sense of humor and love of life.
Please join us in celebrating Tim, by helping to fund Luke’s college education. Our goal is to provide Luke with the opportunity to find the same joy and fulfillment in his lifelong endeavors as his dad.
Thank you for your endless love and support.
