WHERE THE TRAIN GOES SLOW

(select works)

.....................................


Made in June 2018 while in residence at the Eyes on Main Street photography festival in Wilson, North Carolina, these photographs loosely document a six-square-block area situated along the railroad tracks that divide the city’s redeveloping downtown from dispossessed tobacco warehouses and industrial sites. Once a center of tobacco cultivation, Wilson was widely known as "The World’s Greatest Tobacco Market" in the nineteenth century.  Today, Wilson has ceded its top agriculture standing to international growers and despite efforts to diversify business through banking, retail, and tourism, about 26% of the population lives below the poverty line.
