Mind heart and the City

Mind heart and the City

Mind heart and the City documents downtown Asheville’s most recent iteration of gentrification as it strives to maintain the diversity of its bohemian mountain culture. The images reveal a people and culture experiencing a paradigm shift as it transitions into the new millennium. The show will be a mix of approximately 50 black and white and color silver gelatin prints captured completely on film shot over a ten year period. Although the use of film is not the main focus the project, my intent was to rediscover the 20th century humanist approach to street photography via the utilization of old manual film cameras to explore and document city life. There will be two books, Mind heart and the City and The Last Memory that will accompany the exhibition.

The exhibit will feature photographs from both books. The video below features images from the upcoming show and accompanying books. The show will run from April 6 to April 27, 2018 at the Emporium Center Gallery, 100 S. Gay Street, Knoxville, TN 37902.

An opening reception will be held on Friday, April 6, 2018. For more information, visit or Also visit: Information about books can be found at: “Quickening” is written and sung by Madelyn Lavender. Percussion for “Quickening” by River Guerguerian. For more music, visit
