2010 Visitor’s Guide cover will feature popular Steve Moore photo

The cover of the 2010 Fayetteville Visitor’s Guide was unveiled at today’s Advertising and Promotion Commission meeting and will feature a photo taken by the late Steve Moore.

The photo, a popular shot of the castle at Wilson Park, is part of The Panoramic Project, a series of photos Moore took while documenting the many changes that Fayetteville’s scenery has gone through over the years. The project was officially unveiled during the First Thursday event at Fayetteville Underground last September.

Moore’s photographic style was a culmination of his early film photography, influenced by Ansel Adams, and his investigations of panoramic images using contemporary digital processes.

Moore, a respected local craftsman and photographer, died in December at the age of 69.

Besides being a starting point for visitors to find information about local attractions, the annual guide also includes some brief Fayetteville history, spotlights on local businesses and maps of the trails, the UA Campus and other local landmarks.

Finalizations on the design of the new guide are currently being wrapped up. Expect to see it around town sometime in late spring.
