Location: Marfa, Texas (USA)
Description: This picture is from the 'Lost America series' and shows a quiet stillness in a forgotten landscape that is somehow ‘on-pause’. Spaces appear frozen in time, their inhabitants, absent or long since departed. Ardently stagnant in their appearance, the images aim to unlock a moment of reflective contemplation and instill a melancholic feeling of familiarity.
4 Hours of Air Traffic
Author: Garret Suhrie (US)
Location: San Francisco Int'l, California (USA)
Description: A stacked exposure showing 4 hours of air traffic departing from the N/S runways at SFO. This is one of a series, showing the frenetic pace with which these complex microcosms operate. To achieve this image, I was perched on a mountaintop 2 miles from the runway, with a super-telephoto lens, clicking exposures every time a plane departed.

Location: Athens (Greece)
Description: I spent a decade documenting Renzo Piano's Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center in Athens. The images were created during aerial orbits from the site’s tower. Borrowing their name "Orthographs" from Leon Battista Alberti's description of the ground plan; they attempt to record the ephemeral intermediate stages of the construction, and the human effort behind it, before they slowly fade from memory.
