Photographer Rick Smith gives talk at Asheboro Library

Tonight(Thursday) January 14 at the Asheboro Library
Award-winning photographer Rick Smith will show images from his new book, "Vanishing Icons", at a Friends of the Library program, 7 p.m. Thursday, January 14, at the Asheboro library. Vanishing Icons, published by Lonesome Oaks Press, shows images captured over 30 years in 17 states and three countries depicting weathered barns, farm houses, farm equipment and other “icons” of the rural countryside. Smiths says the photographs are silent witness to a fading rural landscape. Smith will sell and sign copies of his book after his presentation. Now a North Carolina resident, Michigan native Smith honed his skill working in one of the largest photography studios in Detroit. After moving to North Carolina in the early 1970s, he opened an operated a commercial advertising studio for over 25 years. He has lectured at the Rochester Institute of Technology and is a regular lecturer, workshop leader and contributor in the Randolph Community College photography program.
