Photographs by Ken Abbott from the traveling exhibition and book “Useful Work: Photographs of Hickory Nut Gap Farm”

An exhibition at the Center for Documentary Studies features thirty-eight color images by Ken Abbott, who photographed Hickory Nut Gap Farm over a period of five years. The site in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina includes an old inn—the “Big House”—and surrounding property, where five generations of one family have lived and worked the land.

Abbott will visit CDS on August 18 for a reception and artists’ talk; he will also be signing copies of a book by the same name.
