CPJW


Hey ArtsLovers!

I’m back from a summer away! If you want to see some of the stuff I did this summer and some other really cool multimedia work from UNC students, check out http://www.carolinaphotojournalism.org/cpjw/2010. It’s a collaboration to tell stories about places and personalities in the beautiful blue ridges of Little Switzerland, NC.

In May 2010, during the seventh annual Carolina Photojournalism Workshop, 19 students produced a diverse collection of stories that document life in and around the small mountain town of Little Switzerland, N.C. The base camp was located at Wild Acres, a beautiful retreat located on Pompey’s Knob, a mountain just off the Blue Ridge Parkway, at an altitude of 3,300 feet.

Situated on the edge of Pisgah National Forest, the area surrounding Little Switzerland boasts of all those things we love about western North Carolina, from scenic vistas and ancient forests to artisans and guitar-pickin’ heroes.
