WILSON, Something old, something new
( Work in progress)
WIlson has been a famous tobacco town, with numerous old warehouses and the life associated with this industry, before falling into a deep lethargy, watching the businesses close.It's also a city with a huge black-american community, who works to rescue its past and its history, especially in East-Wilson neighborhood.
This series seeks to work around the idea of movement through those born and raised in the city who seek to generate movement and change around them and the newcomers, who imagined that this city could be their place in the world.
It is a series made at the Eyes on Main Street Photography Residency in the city of Wilson, NC. February 2022.
