Camp North End

In early July, my wife and I visited Charlotte, NC for the Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit in a building originally built as a Ford Model T factory.  During WWII, the US Army expanded the campus building five additional massive warehouses to serve as a Quartermaster Depot.

In the Cold War years, the campus was used to build missiles, where the site was referred to as Charlotte Area Missile Plant, or CAMP for short.

Now Camp North End is in the middle of a massive multi-year adaptive reuse project, and is now a mix between industrial art collective, shopping center, and an outdoor food hall.

With several parts of the campus in various stages of renovation, I enjoyed exploring numerous photographic opportunities as much as the Van Gogh Exhibit.

More compositions are in the works and will be featured in a future post, or in my Monochromia posts.  Thanks for taking time to visit my photo blog.  For the best viewing experience, click on an image to view a high-resolution version.
