This project has been funded by the Office of the Provost at West Chester University in 2010 and a Faculty Development Grant 2011 from West Chester University.

The Camera Betrays You was shot on The Highline in New York City in October 2010.

The City Belies You was shot on the Harriman Reservior in Wilmington, Vermont in August 2011 & The Green River in Halifax, Vermont in September of 2011.

During the historic flooding from Tropical Storm Irene in Vermont our host towns were destroyed. Wilmington suffered the most, losing it's economic heart of downtown under over nine feet of water. People we became friends with and who took great interest in our project lost everything they had. While those very people should be held up to the rest of the country as examples of how to work together in the face of adversity.

Music "Everything In Its Right Place (Alternate Version)" by Brad Mehldau Trio
