Like fellow photographer Hunter Madsen, JP uses his photographic lens to excavate beauty and visual interest from places and things that may not seem to possess it. Part of the way that JP does this is through a focus on colour. Though a car parked next to a wood-paneled building may not seem like much at first, the way JP zeroes in on the colour contrast between the warm hues of the wood and the deep green of the car’s paint job, and the contrast between textures, showcases an unexpected kind of visual appeal.

It’s this unexpected edge that demands a closer look, and allows the viewer to see through the artist’s eyes. Browsing through JP’s photographic portfolio could inspire one to look for unexpected beauty in their own community or home.
