Alexander Kreher, comes to VCUarts Art Foundation from Germany. His girlfriend is Zoë Romano, who ran across the US as Alex documented it. Kreher created a short film – his first – of Zoe’s adventure as a portfolio piece. That film, along with “All Those Beautiful Things,” about a woman from Maine, who struggles with OCD and hoarding, impressed PDNedu (Photo District News magazine) judges so much that they awarded Kreher the top prize.
Now, Romano plans to run the route of the Tour de France. Yes, she will run more than 2,000 miles – including mountains. (You may recognize her name, as she spoke at the first TEDxRVA and wowed everyone.) Kreher will join her and document her once again. He has started a Kickstarter campaign for Zoe Goes Running – The Film: Running the Tour de France.
Kreher will also be featured in VCU’s Make it Real campaign.
We can only imagine what Kreher will accomplish during the rest of his time at VCUarts (he’s only in his first year!). Congratulations to Alex and Zoë on their tremendous accomplishments.
