Weʼre raising £5,000 to Publish a book on the historic market town of Newton Abbot.

What is crowdfunding?

Story

For the last few years I have been photographing the town I love, the unassuming, yet rapidly changing market town of Newton Abbot, in south Devon.

Its history is rich, and it is changing fast.

I am putting together a photographic book to celebrate the town and the experience of living in it, and I wish to share this with you, but it needs a little help!

The book will be a valuable historic document, focusing particularly on the current chapter of the 800 year old cattle market, and the soon to close Tuckers Maltings, one of only four remaining malt houses in the country. The book will also illustrate some of the history and evolution of what is a very down to earth, working market town.

The photographs are both digital and analogue, and I have so far funded it myself. These costs are high.

I am raising £5,000 towards taking, developing and printing colour and black and white images, hiring a traditional darkroom for black and white printing, and the costs of digital and analogue equipment and processing. I aim to publish the book myself and this fundraiser will help substantially with the costs of printing, publication and launch.

Thank you for your support!

    Yesterday I spent a couple more hours after work, photographing and talking to one of the Maltsters, who has worked here at Tuckers Maltings for 24 years. The closure news was sudden, and came as a shock to everyone. I was privileged to watch him rake through the yards of grain, and hear the sound of it in the silence. He told me there are only two traditional floor Maltings left in the whole of the country, soon to be one. There is an air of deep sadness here. https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/eloise-rokirilov

    Please fund my book! Help preserve a visual record of the dying traditions of markets and maltings.... My photographs will celebrate the history of both, in the town of Newton Abbot, and be a valuable asset to historic archives locally and nationally. Thank you! https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/eloise-rokirilov
