If I did get a book published I could use it to help raise funds for the families. The book could be used at the 2019 CONTACT photography festival exhibition fundraiser as well as at future fundraisers. With a $50 or $100 donation to the families you get a free book, that sorta thing. The books could also be sold individually with proceeds going to the dump families.
The Burtynsky grant submission process requirements asks for a minimum 10 dummy layout pages, I submitted 31. My submission is based more on the quality of the photographs versus a super duper arty farty book layout. The eventual book might include these photographs, or there might be changes. I expect the final book would have a total of 50 layout pages including 100 photographs
