About Stephen Curtis Wilson
Wilson was born and raised in Central Illinois and is an emerging regionalist photographer. He was a medical-surgical-generalist photographer and executive writer in the health care field for 33 years. Prior to that he cut steel in a foundry and drove a truck for a time. He has an affinity for design and hopes that becomes ever clearer within his photographs. "I photograph the everyday, the familiar in unfamiliar places. ‘The mundane is given its beautiful due in that it is photographed at all,' suggests photographer Anna Shustikova. Structures left behind; dated, discarded, curious. Rural communities and within once-thriving urban neighborhoods; these are my vistas. I am hopeful that my photographs are reminders of humanness, culture, and community."
