Wheaton Street connects downtown with east Savannah. Thousands drive this road daily but how many actually stop? For the past two years, Savannah native Robert Cooper has been photographing the businesses, their owners and clientele as a sort of introduction to the passersby who otherwise might never know that they were there. These images tell a story of individuals making a living and making a difference in their community along a street that could only be accurately described as blighted, but in that, not charmless.
