When photographs reveal the existing landscape of common sites as anything but ordinary and completely askew, I am happy to see our weird world. Kaitlin Jencso‘s image of seemingly conflicting angles and a combination of odd textures makes me think, “wait, what?”
I was first drawn to this image because of the bright green patch of grass. The geometrically framed image lead my eye to the red fence with two trees behind it–the colors and shapes were pleasing. When I read the caption that this was a prison, it really gave me pause. I was conflicted by what the structures represent but excited by the colors and shapes. Then, I realized the way photographer, Kristin Adair, uses the brick wall to frame the image, subtly closing the viewer out. This image is wonderfully composed and a powerful metaphor.
