I am learning what it means to be in your 20’s. The time of change, understanding, and and plenty of unknowns. I’ve been rooted in Silsbee, a small town about 30 minutes from Beaumont, Texas. The past two years I’ve looked at this town under new eyes. The broken motel reminds me of early morning rides to school. A kid riding his bike around town, a quite man getting his ears lowered, the single-screen movie theater, and the industrial rail yard are all places that have played a part in my development. The quite air of a small town Friday night allows for patience and introspection. I am photographing the people and places of Silsbee, in search of an understanding of my character. – Eric Adams
