Calling all photographers: Document a day in Asheville

The Day in the Life of Asheville photo shoot, a community art-and-documentary effort, is scheduled to start at noon on Friday, April 18, and will extend through midnight April 19.

The project is open to anyone with a camera, and it’s aimed at getting the community involved in artful photography. It’s open to anyone, no matter the extent of their skill or the size of their camera lens.

The project is in its second year. Last year’s spring event saw 25 local photographers shoot literally thousands of photographs in Asheville. A selection of photos picked by local judges, who work as professional photographers, were displayed at Pack Memorial Library and donated to the library’s North Carolina Collection.

Anyone interested in participating should go to for more information. Click here to see a slideshow of photos from last year’s Day in the Life of Asheville event.

  1. I am sure that Iris Photo +Imaging would put a poster up about this event.

    I just started working there at their new location, 660 Merrimon Ave. and they are very pleasant people who are passionate about local photography.
