Thomas Gillaspy’s photo, “Vertigo,” was used as cover art for issue 6.
Tell us about your photograph “Vertigo.” Where did you take this photo?
Vertigo was taken in Boulder, Colorado. This intensely red wall juxtaposed with the damaged road sign and shadows produces a sense of instability.
What interests you about urban minimalism?
In my photography, I search for unique combinations, patterns, colors and contrasts in the urban environment.
What do you want your viewers to take away from your work?
I hope it inspires other artists and photographers to search for beauty in the mundane. By this I mean, finding beauty in the ordinary, the overlooked.
Who is another photographer that you particularly admire?
Gregory Crewdson is the first name that comes to mind. In my opinion, he has taken photography to a new level. His photography is so elaborate, precise and though provoking. A combination of film and photo in some respects. I could spend days looking at his creations.
