Black and White Minimal Architecture

  • Prize
    Bronze in Architecture/Buildings
  • Photographer
    Elizabeth Holmes

This is a series of minimalist structures with design elements that strive to convey the message of simplicity. The basic geometric forms used with simple materials form a repetition within the structure and represent a sense of order within the modern society.

Elizabeth Holmes is a fine art photographer from New York. Her work explores the strong sense of place found within cultural and natural landscapes rich in character. Places that connect us to a specific place and time and bring us closer to our inner lives.

Elizabeth earned a B.A. at Fordham University and studied photography at The New School, International Center of Photograph, CUNY LaGuardia, and The Center for Photography at Woodstock.

Her work has been exhibited internationally and collected by corporate and private collectors.
