For his project in Landmark Education’s SELP program, Jeremy Deweese of St. Louis lead a group of photographers in creating “24 Hour Cure”, a project which created photo exhibits to raise funds for the American Diabetes Association. All the proceeds went to directly to the association, which focuses on diabetes prevention, finding cures, and advocacy.
The exhibit featured photos of different photographers taken around the St. Louis area of anything that inspired them. Photos were exhibited, sold and delivered as gifts for the holidays.
Deweese, a photographer, and Christie Derbin, from the American Diabetes Association, were interviewed on channel 5 television by Jennifer Blome to discuss the exhibit party which took place at the Lure nightclub on Washington Avenue.
