I’m photographing in western North Carolina this week, one of my favorite places in the U.S. It’s familiar to me from years of backpacking and camping in this region. This isn’t a place of continual grand vistas; it’s much softer and more understated than that. As some of the oldest mountains in this hemisphere, these are quiet, intimate rocks.
One of my earliest photographic influences was Eliot Porter, whose beautiful book of Appalachian photographs is still one of my favorites. It could have all been shot within 20 miles of where I’m located now.
I’m shooting every day and when I get lucky enough to get something I like, I plan to post it up to the site.
