Photographer Watson Brown travels the back roads of eastern N.C. searching for historic buildings, houses, landscapes, people and townscapes scenes from another time, and especially those that may be soon lost to the passage of time. Through the use of light, shadows, textures and unique overlays, Brown has develped his own unique artform, creating haunting images that evoke long-forgotten memories and moods while producing photographs that are often mistaken for antique paintings. His ultimate goal is to leave a legacy of these images for future generations so that they may know how life was lived down east in the early 20th century.
