WILD BY GORDON STILLMAN “Wild” is a photographic project by Richmond photographer Gordon Stillman that explores the interaction between humans and nature, providing insight into the story of the built environment, nature's resilience and fragility, and the changing role of different spaces in our society. Initially inspired by Richmond's Church Hill neighborhood, where neglected buildings covered with weeds sit next to historic buildings with manicured ivy and gardens, the project includes scenes from urban and rural spaces throughout Virginia and across the United States.
Gordon Stillman is a professional photographer that has lived in Richmond since graduating from college in 2007. He took his first photography class at high school in New Hampshire, and hasn't stopped taking photographs. Gordon has also studied photography in Santa Fe, London and Williamsburg. Gordon's works have been exhibited at Crittenden Gallery, BECA New Orleans, Artworks and the Smithsonian Institute. His other personal projects include the Virginia Sustainable Agriculture Documentary Project
