About the exhibit: For one week in late October 2015, more than 140 professional and student visual journalists from across the country gathered in Frankfort to teach one another and improve their skills as visual storytellers. Here we see the glorious dome of political power, and enjoy the beauty of the river called Kentucky. Here we hike the hills and rocky bluffs that tower over it. But mostly, here is where we find the story of a place we know: home. Here we document the lives of our neighbors. Not the rich and famous who control our government and culture, but the worker bees who keep Kentucky buzzing: schoolteachers and kids, hairdressers and dressmakers, storekeepers and shoppers, farmers and truck drivers, moms and dads. This is their story. It’s what the Mountain Workshops are all about. More: To view all of the stories from Frankfort, visit http://www.mountainworkshops.org/
