The Place You Will Wait for the Rest of Your Life is an exhibition that combines Greg Pond’s previous work with a documentary project he has undertaken over the last 9 months. Since January 2014 Pond has been working with photographer Amy Johnson on an ongoing documentary project about the community of Patten Towers, a Section 8 housing facility in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The project follows several residents, developing unique works in collaboration with each person. One of the residents is man named Crazy Horse, who possesses a remarkable creative brilliance.
