Christopher J. Scott brings us fleeting moments of simplicity in today’s hectic America. His landscape work shows varying qualities of light and shadow, sunshine and twilight and their interplay with the symmetry of man-made structures imposed on nature’s gentle shapes. He brings his eye for isolation and stillness to urban scenes, even capturing the contained exuberance of a pick-up basketball game.

“I think of horses in cities, with the eye-caps on to prevent them from freaking out about all the busyness around them. The camera has the same function for me – it allows me to focus.”

“I believe that capturing people in the frame helps to connect the viewer with the scene, not only in terms of scale, but also on a human level. It helps people imagine what it would be like to be in the frame themselves.”
