WalMart and the Wilderness

Way back in 2010, I shot a cover story for Preservation magazine about Walmart and their proposed super store near the Wilderness battlefield in central Virginia. I photographed a Walmart store and printed an "SX-70" Polaroid for art director Jessie Despard to hold. Walmart decided against building the store due to preservation and historical group opposition. Kristian Thacker was the assistant that day.  (Kristian is now shooting.....based in West Virginia... a great guy who is very talented.)
