Hollis Bennetttraveled back to his birthplace of Knoxville, Tennessee, to photograph the Ghost Houses project (“Spirit of the South,” March 2012) on the city’s north side. Seeing this part of town renewing itself was quite a treat for Bennett, especially when he discovered that one of the tenants was an old friend. In between shots he was able to catch up with him and reestablish a grasp and pulse on his old town. “All in all, a great fall weekend in East Tennessee,” he says.
