Boasting tall mountains and taller tales, the High Country region in North Carolina has inspired a rare breed of characters, from rugged individualists to society queens.
In between lies a rich vein of history - how this beautiful, rugged landscape shaped communities, and how people worked the land to make it their own. Some stories are legend; others tell of the simple things: love, family, faith … and hard work.
In a region celebrated for its natural beauty, the human landscape holds stories of lasting worth.
The Carolina Photojournalism Workshop (CPJW) was founded in 2004. Each year UNC photojournalism students travel to a unique part of our state to produce a documentary website in a week. In the tenth annual CPJW, our students found captivating people with riveting tales.
