Its not everyday you come across someone with such an impressive collection. While on assignment down in Savannah, our photoshoot took a bit of a pause as we walked through Ben Carter and wife Tricia’s Broughton Street loft. Every room was a history lesson. Lining the walls were some of the most important maps in American history, map of the British Empire in America, map of the British and French dominions in North America, even Captain Cooks journal and log book. Walking form room to room, You could see the genuine passion and interest as he told us a back story of each one. Occasionally laughing and pointing up in the ceiling to club lights and disco ball tucked away in the house made completely for entertaining. Back in the media room he showed us a prized possession of ….a lessor museum quality….The original wardrobe Eddie Murphy wore in Coming to America. “I like to wear it when we go dancing!”…. A character this guy definitely is.
