2014 Emerging Photography Contender: Jeff Seltzer

In Harmony, Los Angeles-based photographer Jeff Seltzer examines the banal, bringing an unexpected sense of enchantment to the urbanized and often monotonous landscape in which we now live. 

Writes Seltzer in his Artist Statement, “My photography reveals the effect of human occupation within the landscape of contemporary environments. These anonymous, sometimes featureless structures and locations exclude people but at the same time show the effect of human occupation and interaction. My images allow viewers to see beauty in the everyday and show harmony in the ordinary and mundane that we take for granted.”

Each week, Feature Shoot editors showcase the work of one photographer who has applied to the Emerging Photography Awards in order to highlight the diverse array of applications we receive. This is not an endorsement of the photographer for the award.
