About

My name is Tom Carpenter and I run a photography blog called LeftaBit. I'm on here to ask for your help to help bring a project called 'The Full Picture' to life in the form of a photo book.

In 2015 I attended a photography event in London, where a lineup of photographers were talking about their work. One photographer stood out to me and that was largely due to the incredible backstories she told about her photographs. If you'd been looking at the photographs alone, you would never have guessed the stories that led to the photographs being created.

Following the event I couldn't shake the idea, and I wanted to find out if other photographers had similar stories to tell behind their photographs. So I began contacting photographers and asking them to select one of their own photographs and to tell me the story behind their chosen photograph, from that point on The Full Picture project began to grow.

Over the last couple of years I have been collating the stories which photographers have shared with me. From the beginning of the project I've always had it in mind that this project would lend itself well to a book form, with you having to delve behind the photograph to find the story behind it.  If successful the book will be made up with stories from 20+ photographers. From the hilarious to the bizarre, I can genuinely say that all of the photographers bring something individually unique with their stories.

I have shared a few of the stories I have received for The Full Picture project on the blog. Click the images below to see some of them:

If we manage to reach our funding target, Emily at Stanley James Press will be designing the book. Emily has experience when it comes to taking photographic projects and bringing them to life in book form. Projects include 'A Pink Flamingo' by Jack Latham and the incredibly intricate 'Cosmic Surgery' by Alma Haser. To check out more of Emily's work follow  the link below:

THE PLAN / MAKING A BOOK
 As soon as the Kickstarter ends we will get designing the pages of the book. All the content is ready to go, the photographs have been taken and the stories written. The layout design will happen in April ready to print by the end of the month. If the kickstarter is successful then by mid June the finished books will start arriving back from the printers, ready to ship to all the nice people that have pledged.


I hope that this project captures your imagination in the same way it has for me. Any support you can give to this project is massively appreciated.

Risks and challenges

There are very few risks with this project. All the content is ready to go. Emily has lots of experience producing books. The books are being printed in the UK to avoid any currently unpredictable problems importing from Europe. That being said if we miss our goal by a week or two we hope you won’t be too disappointed, we will keep you updated along the way so you will always know what is going on.
