Photos, oral histories of MadisonWritten by Admin
Award-winning photographer and writer Rob Amberg’s multimedia presentation “The New Road and Today’s Mountaineers” — set for 7 p.m. on Nov. 4 in the Waynesville branch — is the first installment of the Haywood County Library’s Roads Across America series.
Using photography and oral histories, Amberg has been documenting change in rural Madison County along the I-26 corridor since the early 1970s. His most recent book, The New Road: I-26 and the Footprints of Progress, incorporates Amberg’s research into a tome “of great imagination, detail, and insight,” claims Tom Rankin, director of the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University.
