No Vacancy No vacancy explores the space between minimalist art and photography, layering black-and-white images with a block of color, essentially hiding a piece of the photograph. Storied flashes of small-town America that appear to be suspended in time, work to function like a movie still offering just enough visual narrative to compel the viewer to seek more. My relentless obsession of both photography and minimalism led me to add the block of color. I became deeply curious about the relationship between photography and minimalism; how we see and how we experience both an image and an art form. The color blocks, each playing a unique role amongst its black and white counterpart, inject character & complexity to the work asking the viewer to experience each image differently while ultimately commenting on photography as an art form. No Vacancy consists of black & white photographs layered, in photoshop, with a block of color. Each image was taken with a medium format Leica camera. The archival pigment prints are available in three sizes; approximately 20x30, 30x45 and 47x70 inches.
