During a 36-hour window last month, scores of local photographers — amateurs and professionals — clicked away for the Day in the Life of Asheville community photo project. This Friday, June 12, Asheville-based publisher Lark Books will host a “digital opening” featuring 100 images selected from almost 1,000 that were taken.
The event will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Lark parking deck at 67 Broadway. Three continuous slideshows will display the selected photos, as well as images from the Citizen Camera project and all of the ones taken for Day in the Life of Asheville. In addition to the pics, there will be music, food from the Mellow Mushroom and beer from Bruisin’ Ales.
“This event is family-friendly and open to the public,” says a press release. “Bring a lawn chair if you plan to sit and relax.”
The featured images were selected as the best 100 by a three-person team of judges from Lark’s photography department. They will become part of Pack Memorial Library’s permanent collection.
