“A Vacated Space” is a collection of frames whose potentials are greater than their emptiness—the air of someone recently having sat in a chair or the sense the walls are speaking to one another. The photos were taken in Los Angeles, CA; Santiago, Chile; London, England; Oxford, England; Santa Monica, CA; and New Orleans, LA.
