These photographs were taken on the original site of Black Mountain College, at the YMCA Blue Ridge Assembly in Black Mountain, North Carolina, in May 2017. Today's campus is very similar to that of the 1930s, retaining many of the original buildings, but details such as the swimming pool and steps leading to the central hall have changed. The site, however, feels spiritually significant and imbued with mythical power; is this the place itself, surrounded by forest, or does it come from an awareness of the place's history?
