Why The Project Exists. What It Exists For.
It all started in a high school darkroom photography course here in Charlotte, NC in 2010 when I, then a junior, sought to tell the history of Charlotte in a colorful and unique way.
Our city is filled with some pretty cool signs. These signs tell our history, they show us our culture, and they tie us to the present. And they stuck out to me.
Because of this, ever since that class it has been my goal to foster an awareness of the Queen City's storied past and rich present through the documentation of her historic roadside signage. This project seeks to promote these reminders of our heritage.
Please keep in touch by following this project on all social media channels at @cltsignsproject as it develops so that you will be in the loop.
