One of the unsung heroes of my community, Lakewood, Washington, is photojournalist and constant community volunteer Ed Kane. He's just asked for help with a book project through +Kickstarter
. Please consider joining me in supporting Ed and his art. In full disclosure, Ed provided Steve Dunkelberger and me full access to thousands of photographs from his archive to use in our own book that just came out. We could never have chronicled the recent history of Lakewood in such depth without his help. Ed could have charged Steve and me for those photos, but he didn't. That's because Ed wanted to contribute to a book about his community. I'm honored to give back to Ed because he's one of the most decent, honorable, dedicated volunteers to community and to real, community journalism that I know. Plus, he takes very good pictures!
