About

Overview

Squared is a photo book project that tells the story of Canterbury in a discrete and unprecedented way. The book is a slice of Canterbury that is rarely noticed but deserves much appreciation; it is a very close look at what lies mostly ignored within the historic city walls of Canterbury.  

The book will be made up of a double page per street, with each street represented by 9 squares of abstract patterns, textures or colours found on that street. While each little square is abstracted beyond meaning on its own, as a whole, each 3x3 grid will convey the unique character and look of the street and should feel familiar to those that know the street well. The images will be complemented by a brief and quirky history for each street giving a little information about the most interesting things to have happened on those streets, from Roman times to the present day.

Why we are fundraising

The time and costs of doing the photography for the book have been generously funded by local businesses, especially Dynamix Accounting, who are the main project sponsor. 

With the content now nearing completion, we need to be able to fund some final costs, cover some costs we've already incurred, and fund the printing of the book.

The Author  

"In order to add any real value, I believe photographic images have to either: be of something or someone that really means a lot to us personally (such as portraits of our children), to show us something completely new, or show something familiar but in a fresh and innovative way. I believe that the way I am photographing Canterbury will really portray its beauty but also show people something new in a city that we all think we know so well, and which has been so well photographed already. It is hard to find a new view of Canterbury, but I believe this project will provide one." - Ralph Hope

Risks and challenges

Ralph Hope is a professional photographer and has delivered photo books for clients for a number of years.

Photographs of all of the streets are complete, and the writing of the history of each is well under way.

Given that we are fund raising to cover publication costs we see little to no risk at this stage. Should there be any delays then backers will be promptly updated.
