Nick Meyer: The Local

Availability: In stock

Nick Meyer grew up in a small mill town in Western Massachusetts and since his youth the town’s terrain has been in flux, with houses and shops continuously erected, razed, and rebuilt in the chasm left by disintegrated industries. The Local documents a town caught between aspiration and decline, a deeply personal account which reveals the struggles, tumult, and everyday life that occur in a place which, from the outside, appears caught in stasis. The experience depicted here is of strangeness and familiarity: the rhythm of change might be recognizable but the parameters have shifted, with opioid addiction and economic crises joining the steady thrum of deindustrialization in defining it.
