About the Book
The Columbia College Chicago Photography Department traveled in April 2017, to Wilson, North Carolina, delivering photography workshops for one week to over 100 students. Students received a brief and concentrated presentation and then, along with a trained instructor, explored downtown Wilson in small groups with Canon Rebel digital cameras. The results of the project were exhibited at a gallery opening as part of the Eyes on Main Street Photo Festival. A complete archive will be given to the city of Wilson which will stand not only as a historic marker for the city but also a vivid reflection of the true potential of the students and community. This project was made possible through the generous sponsorship of Canon USA's Rebel With a Cause program, providing instruction, cameras, and equipment, along with Hahnemühle's donation of fine art paper.
