”The Vanishing Cultures Project, which is currently applying for non-profit status, is run by two young American journalists, Taylor Weidman, 28, and Nina Wegner, 30, who document rapidly changing traditional cultures. They then self-publish a book with photos taken by Weidman and chapters on the culture written by Wegner.” – Meredith Galante
