Lowry Wilson

Wilson is an award winning photographer living in New Albany, Mississippi. A native of southwest Virginia, he has called Mississippi home since moving to the Tupelo area at the age of four. He has been involved in various aspects of the art of photography since the age of fourteen, including owning a full time portrait and wedding studio. His website Old South Images (http://www.oldsouthimages.com) is a showcase of his current work.

Wilson’s work has been included in juried exhibitions at the Meridian Museum of Art, the Tupelo Gum Tree Museum, and the Gum Tree Arts Festival. In addition, he has had solo shows at the Corinth Artist’s Guild and the Union County Heritage Museum.

In 2008 and 2012 Wilson won 1st place for photography in the Meridian Peoples’ Choice Competition and placed 2nd in 2009. He placed 3rd in 2010. The Gum Tree Arts Festival awarded his work 1st place in photography in 2011 and 2012 and 3rd place in 2009. In March 2010, he was awarded 1st place in 2D art at the Jerry Brown Arts Festival in Hamilton, AL and 2nd place in 2012.

Before concentrating on landscape work, Lowry was an active portrait and wedding photographer in Newton, Mississippi. He has taught classes in studio lighting, Photoshop, and business practices to several hundred photographers and in the past few years has led photographic tours on Route 66 in Kansas and Oklahoma. He is currently working on a project featuring the beauty of the Mississippi Delta.

His photographs have been featured in Mississippi Magazine and selected as cover art for a regional phone directory.
