About the Book
Mysteries of Manteo presents a series of fine art photographs inspired by Manteo, which is a part of the Outer Banks region of North Carolina. Manteo was the locale of one of histories most important unsolved mysteries, The Lost Colony. In this book, I have tried to capture the feel of mystery as represented by the marshes, forests and sounds of the town. Note that this is not a travelogue.
