Photojournalist Pete Marovich is trying to raise awareness of the plight of the Gullah/Geechee people of the Sea Islands along the southeastern coast of the United States. Direct descendants of enslaved Africans, sovaldi the Gullah/Geechee are fighting to hold on to their land and culture in the face of development.
He is raising funds to complete the project and to donate a framed exhibition of the images to the Gullah/Geechee people.
You can see more images from the project and find more information here: Shadows of the Gullah.
