Being from NJ/ NYC I have had a life long love of bagels. So, when the opportunity to photography Home Free Bagels in Asheville, NC came up I didn't hesitate for a moment. I spent a very late evening with Alexander Blume, the owner of Home Free Bagels and followed him and his team as they prepped dough and made bagels for baking the next morning.
They call themselves " A For-Profit with a Social Justice Twist" and their mission is to make artisan, boiled before baked bagels while employing people struggling with homelessness. You can find out more about them on their website here.
