WILSON, Something old, something new
The series “Wilson, something old, something new” work around the idea of movement both through those born and raised in the city who seek to generate change around them and restore life and light to a ghostly town center and the newcomers, who imagined that this city could be their blank page and their place in the world to start a new life. Wilson, North Carolina has been a famous tobacco town, with numerous old warehouses, town houses and the life associated to this industry, before falling into a deep lethargy, watching the businesses close and people leave. It's also a city with a huge black-american community, who works today to rescue its past and its history, like several cemeteries and a complete neighborhood.
It is a series made at the Eyes on Main Street Photography Residency in the city of Wilson, NC, USA. February 2022.
