A Photography Project
The Campbell County Historical & Genealogical Society is seeking amateur and professional photographers to submit photos for a new book project. On April 27th, use your pictures to help create a piece of history.
The crowd-sourced photos of Campbell County will document a day-in-the-life
This book, One Day in Campbell County, will depict everyday life in Campbell County on one particular day. We want photos from every corner of the County with subject matters about how we live, work, play, and learn. We want to see our places and people, our landscapes and streetscapes. We want the good and the bad, the spectacular and the mundane. This will be a snapshot of us for generations to come.
Select photographs will be published in a photo book of Campbell County
So many of our Campbell County treasures have fallen victim to the wrecking ball. This book is an opportunity to record a piece of the wonderful treasures we have today for the benefit of future generations. People love looking at old pictures. They seem to enjoy reminiscing and seeing how things used to be. This will be a book for those that come after us. Imagine people opening this book 50 or 100 years from now and feeling the awe we feel when we see a picture from the early 1900s. This book will show them a snapshot of Campbell County in 2019 across a broad spectrum of all the segments of this County.
