Keen photographers asked to help with book celebrating Kings Hill

Keen photographers asked to help with book celebrating Kings Hill

Amateur photographers are being offered the opportunity to share their pictures with the chance of being selected to appear in a new book celebrating the three decades of Kings Hill’s development.

The coffee table style publication will combine the work of professional photographers and amateur enthusiasts to chart the evolution of Kings Hill from a flat military airfield to the beautifully landscaped, bustling garden village it is today.

The pictures can be anything illustrating life at Kings Hill over the past 30 years, whether it’s community activities, sports matches, barbecues, wildlife, buildings, snow, sunsets, public art or the quirky.

“We would love it to be a real community project, showcasing the things that make Kings Hill such a vibrant place and are important to those living, working and visiting here,” said Liberty’s Caroline Binns.

“There is so much to be proud of at Kings Hill and we want to bring it all together into a publication that shows what has been achieved to date as we look towards the next phase of development.

“As well as the celebratory book we will be exploring other ways in which we can share some of these photos more widely, perhaps online or in an exhibition in the Control Tower Gallery.”

As well as digital images it is hoped some people may have photographic prints, negatives or transparencies capturing Kings Hill’s early days – which will all be returned. Digital images should be emailed to kingshill@suttonyoung.com by the end of March and hard copy photos sent or dropped into Liberty’s reception in the Control Tower by the same date. All images should be accompanied by written permission for use in the book and elsewhere and any used will be credited.
