John McWilliams (born 1941, Pittsfield, MA; lives in McClellanville, South Carolina)

Todd Hido: “I’m drawn to the surreal quality of these images, and the kudzu.”

John McWilliams became fascinated by the South shortly after graduate school and has lived there ever since. Drawn to places that evoke a strong sense of history, McWilliams’ photographs often take as their subject the inexorable creep of time. Romantic and mysterious, the works allude to the presence of ghosts.
