Lane Street Project: the Senior Force at work.

Jerome De Perlinghi’s Eyes on Main Street has enriched Wilson not only via its astonishing yearly public exhibition of world-renowned photographers, but with its artist residency program. In October, New York City native Chris Facey brought his Leica to Wilson’s streets. He found Black Wide-Awake and reached out to me to get his bearings; I immediately connected him with Castonoble Hooks.

In the short time since, Facey has become an honorary member of the Hooks family. Though his residency lasted only a month, he returns regularly to Wilson and has made to Lane Street Project the profound gift of his documentary eye. Yesterday, Facey was at Odd Fellows Cemetery as the Senior Force — Castonoble Hooks, his brother William Hooks, and R. Briggs Sherwood — put in work.

Thank you, Chris Facey!

  1. This project has been rewarding to me in many ways, none more rewarding, than meeting Chris Facey although young he is an honorary member of the Senior Force! He is a force, inherit talent and intelligence matched with manners that would make any parent proud! Glad God sent him here and Lisa sent him to me! Always welcomed.
