Joy of serendipity : the same day an old friend from Nice (and a pretty good photographer, too) reconnects with me, I got my very pretty My Diet Pill LP in the mail box (My Diet Pill is the best band from Nice, certainly from French Riviera and maybe from France) – and furthermore, I’ve got my Steve Egger comics. It’s funny because both albums were the counterpart of crowdfunding.

J’attire votre attention sur un autre projet en crowdfunding, cette fois-ci une bédé qui a l’air fort sympathique :

«Bienvenue à l’école de recrues»

Bande dessinée mettant en image l’école de recrues au sein de l’armée suisse.

J’ai tenté d’esquisser au mieux cette abondance d’anecdotes que l’armée suisse nous offre.

Des histoires qui traversent les époques.

Enfants,
parents, grands-parents et amis pourront se réunir autour d’une même
bande dessinée pour un moment de partage authentique.

Commencée
pendant mon service long, cette BD a été réalisée en 3 ans et est
aujourd’hui prête pour une version imprimée! C’est en constatant
l’intérêt suscité par le lancement d’une page Facebook en mai 2015
(« Bienvenue à l’école de recrue ») avec plus de 4’000 personnes actives
à son suivi, que j’ai décidé de tenter l’expérience du Crowdfunding
afin de concrétiser ce projet.

Le projet a déjà atteint son objectif, mais plus on est de fous…

Niels made it in less than three (<3) days! Next objective:

Wow! You are incredible! The goal of 6’000 had been reached this morning. Less than 3 days after the beginning of the campaign!

And what’s next? As most of the backers are french speaking, why not adding a second language to the book? So, here’s my new offer:

If we reach 10’000.- Let’s not only make an exhibition, but also have the book in english AND french.

Do you want a different take on Ukraine and Chernobyl’s meltdown? You can contribute to Niels Ackermann’s long term photographic project about the youth of Slavutych, a beautiful book and exposition full of wonderful pictures: Chernobyl’s Children Grew Up.

«Welcome to the city of teenagers!»

Let’s discover a different story about Ukraine and about Chernobyl! Let me show you the youth of Slavutych, Ukraine’s youngest city: the town built by Soviet authorities after the nuclear disaster to keep a workforce close to the power plant.

In this city lost in the middle of a forest I met Yulia and her friends. During the three years of my project, they allowed me to photograph very intimately their transformation from teenagers into adults. The unexpected children of the disaster are now building their future in country torn by war and economic crisis, but at the same time filled with opportunities.

Next year the world will commemorate the 30th anniversary of the worst nuclear accident it ever saw. Media will offer the usual stories of death, cancer and desolation.

With this project we can tell another story: instead of looking in the past with anxiety, focusing on the power of young generation.

My Diet PillThe Port. You too can help producing the best band from Nice‘s third album ! [in english] [en français] at kisskissbankbank.

As for our previous record which was released as a CD included inside a comic book that we have created, we wanted to repeat that experience of artistic collaboration and have therefore decided to share our songs with French photographer Roxane Petitier for her to illustrate with pictures in the booklet.

We are really excited to be able to present this new album to you!

We wanted not only to create a quality album, but also to give you a complete and rich product which we could be proud of. For that reason, we plan to release this 11 track album in a package including a 180 gram vinyl, a CD, a digital version and a booklet including all the lyrics and the pictures illustrating all the songs.

Find all the information on the project page and choose the reward you prefer amongst many possibilities. For example, with 25€ you get the package including the vinyl record + CD + download coupon + booklet with pictures and lyrics + your name in the booklet, with 100€ you get the same + several signed photo prints + unreleased songs + t-shirt, etc… Check it out now!

/! Early bird contributors: we have added rewards for the first contributors, you’ll get more for the same price. Pay attention 😉

On the project page, you can hear 3 of the new songs. The first single is called “The Port”. Here is the video, directed by Mathieu Giombini.
