Two New Photographic Collections by Tim Barnwell
Asheville photographer, Tim Barnwell will return to City Lights Bookstore on Friday, October 18th at 6:30 p.m. He will present his two books of photography, Faces & Places of Cashiers Valley and Tide Runners: Shrimping and Fishing on the Carolinas and Georgia Coast.
The Faces and Places of Cashiers Valley project was initially begun in 2010 as a one-time arrangement between Mr. Barnwell and the Cashiers Historical Society. The society wanted to raise awareness about the historic sites in Cashiers Valley and encourage people to preserve specific structures. In addition to the portraits, landscapes, architectural studies, and oral history interviews produced by Mr. Barnwell, chapters were added on the “History of Cashiers” and the “Cashiers Historical Society” to provide additional context. Faces and Places of Cashiers Valley is the culmination of over eight years of work by Mr. Barnwell and the Cashiers Historical Society.
Tide Runners: Shrimping and Fishing on the Carolinas and Georgia Coast, is the culmination of nine years of work. Best known for his touching and evocative images of Appalachia, here he turns his keen eye and documentary talents to focus on the shrimping and fishing industries of the southeastern coast. This exploration took him to the Outer Banks and seaside towns of North Carolina, dozens of seaboard locations in South Carolina and Georgia, and Fernandina Beach and St. Augustine, Florida, historic home of the shrimping industry in America.
