Last summer a family friend of mine, Renée Ricciardi, spent three months in Italy photographing bees and beekeepers for her project, Bees in Italy. Italy became the first country in the European Union to ban neonicotinoids, pesticides that were proven to be a major factor in colony collapse. Through her photography she’s hoping to educate people on progressive farming and to show the bond between beekeepers and honeybees. She’d like to go back to finish her project but she needs your help! There’s only 9 days left and she’s so close to her goal!
Help use art to save bees!!
