A photography exhibit, part of a Tide and Time project, opens Thursday, September 16 at 9 a.m. at the Salvo Community Cemetery in the Salvo Day Use Area on the Cape Hatteras National Coastline.
The exhibition on the fence will be on display every day until November 16, 2021, from 9 a.m. until dark.
The Tide and Time fence exhibit is a free public photography exhibit that explores the effects of erosion and sea level rise on the Salvo Community Cemetery. Using scientific data, photographs and historical portraits of people buried at the cemetery, the exhibit guides visitors to better understand how climate change and human development are not only physically altering the Outer Banks, but psychological sentiment as well. inhabitants.
The work is a collaboration between Outer Banks residents and Justin Cook, a Durham-based photographer and journalist, and is part of his four-year photography and reporting project, Tide and time, which was recently published in The Coastal Review Online and is part of the Pulitzer Center National Curriculum Connected Coasts Reporting Initiative.
The reporting project and closing exhibit were made possible by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting Connected Coastlines Initiative, the North Carolina Arts Council, the Photoville FENCE exhibit, The Coastal Review Online, and The National Park Service.
