A musical collaboration. Richard who accompanied me on many video shoots was inspired to write this song.  I knew that I wanted to create a Music Video to accompany the work of this project, once I heard this song. The lyrics cover the scope of this 100-year story. Textile Crescent Leaders image is from Don Koonce.Thanks to Don Koonce for the tour of the Textile Crescent, where much of the footage was shot for this music video.
This photography show is about the "abandonment" of Greenville's textile industries featuring the historical remnants of the Industrial Age with mysterious images printed on high definition aluminum metal. The art inspires reflection on the changes in our work and economy.
Through imagery of old, abandoned or gentrified mills, mill communities, and other historical imagery, I want to show Greenville’s industrial history, both the good and bad, to its present-day state. The work will help the viewer reflect on current day economics and the ways the community was built around work. The audience will see how things have changed and how Greenville's Parker and Water Tower district are once building back community. The location of the show itself reflects renewal. 
The photography and multimedia project will be shown at Lever Gear at Hampton Station.  My inspiration for the project began in the Water Tower district, at work. 
Please come.
