Here’s Looking at EAU CLAIRE

WORDS Mike Paulus   PHOTOS Travis Dewitz

Prolific local photographer and Eau Claire native Travis Dewitz has spent countless hours preserving the city of Eau Claire on (digital) film. Within his many personal photo series, you’ll find an extensive collection of images documenting the city’s many landmarks and quirks. Having grown up here, Travis has an eye for what makes this place “home.” So in honor of Volume One’s “Rebuilding Our Neighborhoods” theme issue, we asked him to pick out a set of photos that – to him – say “Eau Claire Neighborhood.” What we got is a visual montage of local sites both grand and ... not so grand. But uniquely familiar all the same. Check it out.
