“Seeing Community: A Collaborative Documentary
Exhibit,” an exhibition of 45
black-and-white photographs, will be on view through February 8 at UNC
Asheville’s Highsmith University Union Gallery. The show is a collection
of photographs from a year-long photography documentary project
conducted by UNC Asheville Undergraduate Research Scholars Marcela
Ashburn, John Burdett, Naomi Johnson and Jamie Simons.
Asburn and Johnson
photographed children who live in Woodridge Apartments and are served by
the Emma Family Resource Center. The exhibition also includes
photographs taken by the children. Burdett and Simons documented the
residents of Life House, an independent living facility for individuals
with spinal cord injuries or other mobility issues.
The gallery is located on
the ground floor of UNC Asheville’s Highsmith University Union. The
gallery is free and open to the public from 8 a.m.-midnight Monday
through Friday and 10 a.m.-midnight Saturday and Sunday.
