"I'm interested in the artfulness of those things that make up the region where I've lived all my life. I'm a design junkie and seek out the time-worn, curious, and funky. I explore rural communities and urban neighborhoods for reminders of humanness, culture, and community. My photographs are little portraits, an investigation of this place. I continue to find my voice and those moments when everything comes together are worthy of the worry." Wilson was a medical and generalist photographer, writer, and communication specialist in the health care and library science fields for 36 years - cut steel in a foundry and drove a truck for a time. He is a graduate of the fine arts program at Illinois Central College, received a BA from the University of Illinois, and is a juried Illinois Artisan for Photography, Illinois State Museum.
