They form part of the multi-artist project "Where we live: a North Carolina portrait," funded by the Annenberg Foundation and directed by photographer Alex Harris.

The photographer writes: "As I reflect on the history of documentary photography, my photographs in this exhibition call attention to the evolution of the camera and possibilities of digital art. The resulting panoramas invite the viewer to project their own story into the frame, while considering the relationship between industry, identity, gender, and social mobility in North Carolina."

The collection was acquired as part of the Archives of Documentary Art at Duke University.
