Item Description

Just Yesterday: North Carolina People and Places
Autographed copy
Author: Bruce Roberts

The natural light photography of Bruce Roberts is well known to the readers of Southern Living and Our State magazines. In Just Yesterday, 191 black-and-white and color photographs strike a chord of memory in all who consider North Carolina home. Roberts's unique perspective records fascinating images of lighthouses and coastal scenes, farm workers toiling on family farms in eastern Sand Hills, the Civil Rights movement, explosive urban growth in the Piedmont, and both the natural beauty of western mountains and the quiet dignity of that region's people. Commentaries by Roberts enhance the reader's experience of these timeless photographs.

Bruce Roberts worked as a journalist for several North Carolina newspapers before joining the Charlotte Observer as a staff photographer in 1959. During a fifteen-year period from 1963 to 1978 that he worked as a freelance photographer, his photographs appeared in a number of books and national magazines. In 1978, Roberts joined the staff of Southern Living as the magazine's first director of photography and later served as its senior travel photographer (1982-1992).
