Photographer Ryan Oakley is launching an online Kickstarter campaign in an effort to raise $10,000 to help with publishing.
Oakley says the online project has been successful so far because Nelson has two things going for it.
Oakley says having a physical copy of all the photos and stories about people is just going to add another dimension to the project.
He wants to order two thousand books to start.
A dollar from every book sold will go to a local charity.
