Sue Hershey lives in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina in the picturesque town of Brevard. Brevard is surrounded by the Pisgah National Forest and minutes away from DuPont State Forest. It is located 45 minutes southwest of Asheville and 20 minutes from Hendersonville.
Those who live in Western North Carolina are particularly lucky to be in one of the most beautiful of areas. While the big landscapes of the Blue Ridge mountains, the Blue Ridge Parkway and the majestic waterfalls are what the region is known for, the smaller details are what intrigue me – how slats are lined up on the side of a barn, an old abandoned farm vehicle, the porch mirror of an old cabin, going in to the abstract of a thing. I like to shoot the parts of things and leave the rest to the viewer’s imagination. Start with the big picture and hone in on the tree. The viewer will supply their own forest.
