A Photo Story by Claude Marchesini; Featuring Bill Boykin
"My Hometown" is a photo documentary about Bill Boykin, who pushes himself to risk and recommit daily, to a project that promises to reshape and reinvigorate the core of his community.
"'Not only did he have a vision, but he has a lot of guts, and it took a lot of sweat and it took a lot of investment to get here. This story is called 'My Hometown' but it's Our Hometown. This is what it's all about." - Claude Marchesini, Photographer, Greenville, Mississippi
"I grew up here, and my vision is to see a revitalization of not only just the downtown area, but our entire community. We are the ones, that have got to make the choice that we want it to be better." - Bill Boykin, Developer, The Lofts & Downtown Grill, Greenville, MS
