Architectural Views: Photography by Robert W. Easton

Robert W. Easton is a photographer who specializes in architectural views and candid urban scenes. Robert’s photography portfolio is rife with images that celebrate beauty in disused, forgotten, or abandoned places.

Robert’s recent series of photos from Cuba are saturated with color, and offer a close-up, personal biew of the region that’s quite different from the polished photos one might see in travel or tourism materials. I really enjoy Robert’s close-up views, where he examines an old, rusted window grate, or a brightly painted door, a single wall that holds some architectural intrigue. It’s interesting to take these close views with little locations context and examine the differences and similarities to structures throughout the rest of the world.

In his exploration of disused buildings, Robert’s work is slightly reminiscent of Mark Essner or Matt Emmett. Robert’s photos are pleasantly documentary and impartial, presenting a well-framed but unembellished viewpoint.
