BELE CHERE 2006 These are photographic impressions of the color and feel of Bele Chere 2006, the Asheville, NC, three day summertime community celebration of life with food and rides and games and stunts with bands on every corner. These are the people and events I saw in the slanted light of three long summer evenings. Everyone's dress makes a statement. We looked each other over and ate and drank and then went home.
I grew up in India where my parents were Presbyterian agricultural missionaries and have taught at Warren Wilson College most of my life. My photographs are of north India and Sri Lanka where I have traveled many times; of Germany, which is my wife, Kathe's, home; and of the Swannanoa Valley and Asheville, North Carolina and of students and staff at Warren Wilson College, in Swannanoa just outside Asheville. Lately I have also been photographing weddings at Hidden River Events.
