Metropolis Abstracted is an ongoing series of photographic abstractions which incorporate elements of contemporary architecture such as close-up views of facades, building details and reflections on glass. I first scout for locations and pre-visualize the scene, then I capture the image specifically for use in this series. Each abstraction is composed of one unique image, which through the process of reflection reveals an intrinsic geometry. The basic premise is to use the simplest means possible to create images which both engage the viewer and provide a springboard for their own imagination.
