On view through April 26, 2020
Cameron Art Museum
Wilmington, North Carolina

One of the most celebrated architects of our time, Phil Freelon designed spaces that enhanced communities and championed diversity and inclusion. His work, which included museums and cultural institutions, told the story of the American people. Freelon was dedicated to bringing both beautiful and functional high-quality designs into everyday life for all people. Throughout his career, Freelon found photography essential to his design vision and creative process.

Visibly apparent in his artwork is how architecture and nature complement the landscape, Freelon notes: “Photography is one of the vehicles that I use to share my view of the world. As an Architect, the expression of Structure is central to my design process, bringing a sense of order to the final composition. These photographs examine the Structure that exists all around us – both in the natural and built environment. Behind the lens, I seek to capture those fragments of space and time that invite closer examination.”
