Sean Gilchrist is a 22-year old photographer and filmmaker from Arizona. During his studies in economics in rural Pennsylvania, Gilchrist began to photograph street lamps for a university-related project that became a personal project spanning four years. It was during this time he photographed “Appalachia”, which revolves around themes of solitude, isolation, and loneliness specific to agrarian areas. This project, however, as Gilchrist states, attempts to focus more so on the atmosphere, rather than politics of the area.
