Destination Charlotte [the book]
The "Destination Charlotte" book, featuring photography of the Charlotte NC area by Photo Charlotte is now available. Destination Charlotte was photographed over the course of a year in the Charlotte NC area, and highlights what it means to live, work, and play in Charlotte NC. Beautiful photography ranging from The Charlotte NC skyline, to cityscapes, to Charlotte events, to local culture and much more are all covered.
Charlotte NC author Greg Greenawalt and photographer Paul Purser spent the last year traveling throughout Charlotte and the Piedmont region capturing the feeling and spirit of what it means to work, live and play in Charlotte. Destination Charlotte [the book] provides insight into Charlotte’s industry, neighborhoods, cultural and entertainment attractions that have helped to make the nation’s 18th largest city a residential, business and tourism destination.
