The fourth edition of Eyes on Main Street, Wilson Outdoor Photo Festival opened April 21, 2018 in Wilson, NC (USA). Nash Street, the main street of Wilson, is now transformed into a vibrant gallery of large-scale photographs. For 100 days, 100 photographs will be displayed on 100 storefront windows, spanning six city blocks. The exhibition takes visitors across the railroad tracks linking east and west Wilson into one shared community.
Focusing on the theme “A Crossroad of Cultures,” the festival features the work of 100 photographers from 35 countries with an equal number of men and women. Among the artists included in this years’ edition are: Alex Webb, Renée Byer, Guillaume Herbaut, Diana Bagnoli, William Klein, Martin Parr, Gaia Squarci and Krisanne Johnson.
The goal of the festival is to help revitalize Historic Downtown Wilson while cultivating cross-cultural understanding through powerful photography. “One of my favorite things about this particular exhibition is I get to travel all the way around the world for as long as it takes me to walk from this end of the street to the next,” said visitor Tabitha Renfro Durham.
