“My photography reveals the effect of human occupation within the landscape of contemporary environments. My pictures are made to document a time and a place, static treatments of our everyday modern urban landscape. These anonymous, sometimes featureless structures and locations exclude people but at the same time show the effect of human occupation and interaction. I isolate my subjects, creating a head-on, cold and detached Kubrickian symmetry. My images allow viewers to see beauty in the everyday and show harmony in the ordinary and mundane that we take for granted.”

“Most of my personal work explores urban vernacular beauty. My process is intuitive and I am drawn to scenes that are graphic, colorful, and quiet.
Mood and atmosphere are important aspects to my work with strong subtexts of time, identity, and memory. Formally, I am interested in the study of color, form, and space.
I have exhibited at New York Photo Festival, Bridge Art Fair, Hereford Photography Festival, DUMBO Arts Festival, Format 11, London Street Photography Festival, and more.”

This submission comes from Los Angeles based artist Nicole C. Russell.
“In events repeat themselves… a comfortable routine is alluded to, as well as an endless, repetitive doom. From afar, a changing expanse of dirty dishes appears to be a patterned code attempting communication. Up close a beauty unfolds, and potential interactions outside of the realm of the sink begin to be revealed.”
