About this project
I've taken the photos. Help me put them into a book that captures what's unique about Liberty Village.
On January 1, 2013, I started posting a picture a day from Liberty Village on a blog called LibertyVillage365.com. Now, over 500 photos later, it's time to publish the best of these photos into a photobook.
My goal is to publish a book that captures the identity of this community. I hope that this photobook will be enjoyed by those who live and work in Liberty Village, as well as those who enjoy street photography.
Toronto Life calls Liberty Village a neighbourhood which has “morphed from an industrial dead zone into an enclave of concrete, glass and brick in just a few years." It's a community that continues to change right in front of the camera lens.
“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” (Elliott Erwitt)
You can find more photos at LibertyVillage365.com.

Risks and challenges
The photos are ready, and the printers have been selected. The main risks are in two areas: cost (the printing prices could go up; we don't get the quantity discounts we're expecting), and mistakes (typos).
Regarding costs: I've have worked on as many scenarios as possible to ensure that the costs are reasonable.
Regarding typos: I'm enlisting help to review the books before they are sent to the printer.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
