Vuhlandes is a photographer based in Detroit, MI. His surroundings have influenced a unique style: street, gritty, yet clean. Through his images, Vuhlandes aims to capture the raw emotion of his subjects in an honest manner.
Through this grant, he set out to encourage and create an opportunity for this community to submit a project they’ve always wanted to create. These grants were designed for those who wish to get started, but didn’t know how.
The theme around this grant is shooting a story that’s close to home. Creating an environmental narrative around family, neighborhood, homestate, or anything that reflects you and your “home”.

“Detroit is well known for its rich and historic car culture. A perspective that a lot of people don’t get to see is that transportation is not easily accessible to a large amount of the population of a place known as the “Motor City.” Detroiters are so proud of their vehicles not only because of the cities’ reputation, but because of all the barriers people are forced to overcome in order to get the vehicle..."
