Around the Hat: A Medicine Hat Photo Series by Luke Fandrich

What began in early 2012 as a creative side project has now expanded into a 3000+ image series of some of the most iconic and historic locations in and around the small prairie city of Medicine Hat, Alberta. Photographed by Luke Fandrich and shared on Editing Luke the series has reached thousands of viewers and has highlighted a number of locations in a level of detail previously unseen. Using (in many cases) archival images as inspiration, the series centres around many of the structures that were built a century ago in the city's boom during the early 1910s.

See a complete list of the locations photographed below or read more about the project here.

The collection continues to grow and the potential for the series has yet to be realized. Plans for a photo book and/or future exhibitions are still in the very early stages of development, but interest in the project has steadily increased. 

In addition to sharing the history of Medicine Hat, the Around the Hat images have also been made available for custom print orders
