The New Topographics movement, featuring many great American photographers occurred in the seventies. The likes of Robert Adams, Stephen Shore and Lewis Baltz responded to the ever changing American landscape, ultimately finding beauty in the banal. Baltz was mainly concerned with places devoid of human activity, particularly parking lots, empty streets and the backs of warehouses in Orange County.
I began this project with the idea of working in black and white, mainly inspired by this whole body of work. However, as I progressed further and worked through my shoots, I decided that colour would be a more appropriate way of communicating my ideas.
