Solange Noir, Soli. You've met her - and her stunning photographs - before. Here. And here.
Here's the thing. Soli needs to move. Pretty urgently. And, like most of my dearest closest soul friends, she's...well...pretty broke. She's been offered an amazing place to move to in Tucson and now she's just gotta get there. And, yup, America's a big place and moving is expensive so...she needs funds urgently.
And it occurred to me that if even a tiny fraction of my readers bought one of her stunning photographs, that would be it. Problem sorted. It's another of those win-win scenarios really. Soli gets to move herself and her kids into a healthier, happier environment while you get...something amazing.
Her prints start at $60 - though I confess I'd love a truly vast one. Maybe those lips...maybe a flying squirrel...maybe a dark and silent pool. Anyhow...please take a look. She rotates her shop every month but will merrily dig down through the archives if you're after something in particular. And please, if you know any cool and delicious shops or cafes or businesses that might like something rather special for their walls, put them in touch? And if you're broke? Hey, I understand, truly I do...maybe just spread the word instead? That's good karma. The fox will bless you.
Come on, guys. This is what the Internet does really well - spreading the word, doing a little bit of good from time to time.
Is there any rampant self-interest here? Well, sure. At some point I'm gonna go visit her and I'd much rather loll around in Arizona than Washington DC. But...seriously...I just want all the people I love to be happy and healthy. That's the bottom line. Please help any way you can.
