All books have been shipped off to our Kickstarter supporters

It has taken us a couple of days to pack and post all the books and photoprints to our Kickstarter backers. We have also sent off more then 200 books to Suriname for the indigenous peoples portrayed.

Next step is to book our tickets to Suriname, to deliver the more then 200 books to the indigenous portrayed by ourselves. And after buying our tickets, we will start the promotion of our book with the goal to send another large batch of books by the end of April to those who are interested in photography, Suriname and/or indigenous peoples.

Points of Recognition will be published!

We spend thirty days of intense communication, answering many e-mails and messages, sending out an equal amount of e-mails and messages, but it was worth it!

We raised over 16.000 euro of the 15.000 needed for our first edition.

The next step is finalizing the manuscript and get our book printed by Graphius in Belgium.

Talking on the radio about Points of Recognition

No television interviews during our Kickstarter Campaign, but Milton was asked to do several radio-interviews.

One was with SuriMama, who follows the publication of our photobook on the foot. You can listen to Milton’s interview after 30:00.

A second long interview was with Iwan Leeuwin, who hosts a four our show several times per week. You can listen to his interview with Milton from 02:10:00 onwards.

And a third one with Inge Pierre from Indigenous radio.

Kickstarter campaign

In order to print the first 1000 editions of Points of Recognition, I will run a campaign on Kickstarter, offering a diverse range of rewards to people who pledge, among others a signed copy of my book, a personal meetup session, or a 5-day private tour to visit the indigenous community of Suriname. The campaign will run from 21 January to 20 February 2019.
