Jeff Seltzer is a photographer based in the Los Angeles area. He earned a BA in Communication and a MA in Rhetorical Theory.
His work is quiet, structured, very well composed and has a wonderful subtle color palette. He documents our every day urban surroundings, isolates his subjects and excludes people. The result is a terrific collection of photographs who look like contemporary still-lifes. They are captivating, irritating, beautiful and memorable.
Jeff writes about his work:
My photography reveals the effect of human occupation within the landscape of contemporary environments. My pictures are made to document a time and a place, static treatments of our everyday modern urban landscape. These anonymous, sometimes featureless structures and locations exclude people but at the same time show the effect of human occupation and interaction. I isolate my subjects, creating a head-on, cold and detached Kubrickian symmetry. My images allow viewers to see beauty in the everyday and show harmony in the ordinary and mundane that we take for granted.
