David Kramer stands on a hillside which overlooks his property. “Cynthiana found us,” David said, as settling down in Cynthiana was an arbitrary choice. “It could have been Timbuktu if I could have found it.”

This past week, Herald staffers attended the Mountain Workshops in Cynthiana. The workshop takes place in a different town in Kentucky each year and highlights a variety of stories and people in the community through visual journalism. Staffers captured the essence of Cynthiana through their camera lenses with stories ranging from artists to particularly impactful high school students.
