Bill is a photographer with 26 years of professional experience. He moved to Memphis over 4 years ago and coming face to face with the poverty that is here inspired me to use my skills to help create a better Memphis using photography.
He was selected as the 2014 Caritas Village artist-in-residence and my project is to spend a year in the Binghampton neighborhood of Memphis and create a "portrait" of the neighborhood. This will include the people, places, things, events, etc. that define what it means to live in Binghamton.
The Binghampton neighborhood is in transition. It was one of "THE" Memphis neighborhoods to live in a long time ago but, over time, many factors have lead to neighborhood falling into disrepair. Recently, a revitalization has begun.
Caritas has a studio available for rent in the residency building. It comes with heat and air, access to a bathroom and sink area and wifi. The studio rents for $200.00 a month.
We are currently accepting proposal for our residency, Caritas Village residency program is open to artists, designers, curators, students and creative people to exhibit, teach and learn the positive effects that art can play in a community.
