Contemporary Photographers

DavidSchalliol.jpg David Schalliol’s Isolated Building Studies (via) overlap with Kevin Bauman’s, and I think the way to look at them is to think about what the series are about and what they mean.

I remember there have been frequent complaints about supposedly “too many” photos of empty parking lots in contemporary photography. What that tells us, though, is not that photographers have no ideas, but that the spaces we live in are indeed cluttered with those terrible wastes of spaces: Those photographs are reflecting back on us, as a society, what we have done to the places we live in.
