In the fall of 2013, a partnership between the Cape Fear Camera Club (CFCC) and the Federal Point Historic Preservation Society was formed in order to help the Society’s digital collection of Federal Point grow.
Throughout the CFCC 2013-2014 season, members captured images of the area, such as landscapes, businesses, architecture, residents, flora and fauna.
As an added component to the project, the Cape Fear Camera Club created an exhibit, simply titled, “Federal Point,” which is a more artistic, rather than exclusively documentary, representation of the region.
The exhibit predominantly comprises contemporary works, like a whimsical long-exposure of the Carolina Beach Boardwalk’s carnival rides, but also features a 1970 portrait of one of the most well-known residents of Federal Point – Robert Harrill (1893 – 1972), the Fort Fisher Hermit. Additionally, pieces on display range from traditional matted prints to canvas and metal, creating in the gallery a trek of diverse styles.
