The Nancy Carson Library is welcoming
Cecil J. Williams on Tuesday, Oct. 8, at 7 p.m.

Cecil J. Williams, a native of Orangeburg, S.C., is a professional photographer, videographer, publisher, inventor, and architect of six residences, including his own home and photography studios.

Forty years before solar electricity became popular, Cecil designed a solar-powered home featured in Ebony Magazine. One year later, he designed the Envirodome, an energy-light impulsive roof-top device considered for patent by Sears executives in Chicago. In 2015, he designed the Filmcaster, a device now used around the world to digitize film.

His photographs have been featured in over 130 books, 17 newspapers and 11 television documentaries. His work has been exhibited in many museums and galleries across the United States.

Williams has earned the Governor’s Award for the Humanities and the Order of the Palmetto. He was the Times and Democrat’s 2018 Person of the Year.
