Project introduction:

"Eyes on Main Street" is a large outdoors and indoor photography festival and exhibition in Wilson, North Carolina, USA. Curated by Jerome De Perlinghi and co-curated by Carol Johnson and Ghadah Alrawi, the exhibition focuses on the theme of "Main Street, a Crossroad of Cultures" as interpreted by the individual photographers. The main exhibition features 100 photographs by 100 prominent and emerging photographers from over 35 countries with an equal number of men and women participants.

The Fourth edition of the Eyes on Main Street, Wilson Outdoor Photo Festival is now over, and the next edition will run from April 27, 2019 to August 4, 2019, transforming Historic Downtown Wilson into a vibrant gallery of large-scale photographs spanning over six-city blocks.

The 5th Edition of the festival will include six additional exhibits (see the events section on the website), making Historic Downtown Wilson a real crossroads for photography. The Eyes on Main Street Kids' Gallery, presented as both indoor and outdoor exhibits, is the outcome of the Kids' Workshops run by Columbia College Chicago with alumni and local photographers. This program, made possible with the generous support of Canon USA, demonstrates the talents of young participants given a chance to express themselves.

But for the second year in a row Eyes on Main Street will present the Artist in Residence Gallery, a program launched in September 2017. The exhibition will invite each month, year round, a photographer to live with us for 30 days in the Community.

The "Eyes on Main Street" Festival is real proud to share this body of work here at Pingyao, curator and photographers hope to have a chance to collaborate on many other projects in the near future.
