Untitled is a project by photographer Jeff Seltzer, the purpose of which he explains as documenting
places and scenes that that might go otherwise unnoticed if not photographed – in my experience, these are some of the challenging photography opportunities to spot. People are absent from the images which I believe creates a haunting or mysterious quality. I tried to capture images in which viewers would have to imagine people and thus create their own stories. Looking back at the images in this ongoing series, there’s also a strong geometrical component that most of the images have in common and which helps tie them together. I am frequently asked if I set up the scenes, but I do not, not even the shopping carts.In these images, Jeff's compositions and use of lines and color unlock his mundane subjects' quiet beauty.
