North Carolina at Work: Cedric Chatterley’s Portraits and Landscapes of Traditional Labor is a collection of 25 framed photographs by acclaimed documentarian Cedric Chatterley. The exhibit shows at-work images of North Carolinians across the state in their work environments — an oysterer thigh-deep in the sound, workers in a High Point furniture factory, apple pickers along the Blue Ridge Parkway. The photographs highlight the diversity of the physical landscapes and traditional labor in North Carolina, and honor people throughout the state’s strong sense of connection to place.
