I came across this image last night of Alan in action on this project. And while it's not the sharpest and most compelling image, I just had to toss it up here to give a shout out to Alan for all the attention he has given Up from the UnderStory.
Alan is on the project's community advisory group and hasn't missed one meeting. Plus he's on the blog all the time, sharing info and giving supportive comments to the youth media makers. He's also worked with the UCD students who are working up a video on the project. And he takes on and does just about anything you ask--as long as it's about community improvement.
In this picture he's sharing images of the Maskmaking workshop that took place last March in the Blue Mountain Area and some images from the Earth Day event in April he organized. In addition, he came in and scanned some amazing shots of the old mills and mines (stay tuned--i'll be posting them!)
Again, gratitude to Alan.
