Wilson is a regionalist photographer focusing on the everyday, the familiar in unfamiliar places. Russian photographer Anna Shustikova suggests “the mundane is given its beautiful due in that it is photographed at all.” Back roads and across rural landscapes, meeting people, visiting towns along the way – this is where his heart lives. Wilson’s take-away from the towns he visits is often an architectural structure; in better days, places of importance. Dated. Discarded. Curious. During his professional career Wilson was an on-call medical/surgical and generalist photographer, executive writer, and media-relations specialist. A graduate of the fine arts program at Illinois Central College, East Peoria, IL; graduate of the University of Illinois; and a Juried Illinois Artisan for Photography by the Illinois State Museum. His images have most recently been viewed in the 2019 Biennial Quad-State Exhibition – Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Missouri; and 2019 Academy Center of the Arts National Juried Photography Exhibition, Lynchburg, VA; stephencurtiswilson.com
