Woolworth Walk in Asheville, NC, Features Works by Carter Mitchell, Jr.

Woolworth Walk in Asheville, NC, will present CMJR Photography, featuring work by Carter Mitchell, Jr., on view in the FW Front Gallery, from Mar. 1 - 30, 2014. A reception will be held on Mar. 7, from 4-7pm.

With camera in hand almost everywhere he goes, photographer Carter Mitchell, Jr. captures an offbeat view of the Asheville and surrounding towns. He sort of stumbled into photography, getting his first camera in late 2009. But he soon learned that he had a knack for seeing beauty where others might overlook it.

“I gravitate toward anything that shows history or character. The first thing I remember taking pictures of was this old rusted trailer,” Mitchell said. “It was in a bad neighborhood and the people who lived there must have thought I was crazy.”

Since 2011, he has been selling his pictures and his business has grown through experimentation and a passion for his work. For inspiration, the self-taught photographer loves to travel to keep things fresh but downtown Asheville seems to provide an endless source of content and amusement for him.

“At first photographing Asheville was the last thing I was interested in,” says Mitchell. “But I have grown a new appreciation for my home town.”
