I love landscape photography. I love urban environments and pastoral settings. So what happens when you bring one into the other and force a dialogue? You get the work of artist Tim Simmons.
Tim developed a series of installations on billboards in Los Angeles and Philadelphia called “The Urban Land Project.” He thoughtfully studied each area and selected scenes that juxtapositioned against that particular urban landscape would force a dialogue. His photos are breathtaking, but the layered message makes them even more powerful.
