Looking through S J Emberton’s Canadian Exposure series, I feel like I’ve woken up in some sort of zombie apocalypse movie where everything is quiet. Maybe a little too quiet. Devoid of people but not signs of life, each image feels pregnant with anticipation; unnerving but beautiful. From parking lots to strange abandoned looking hotels, Steven’s talents with for composition and colour combine to produce images that are almost endlessly compelling, as the anxious eye takes in the myriad details present in each one.
“I am naturally drawn to the built environment, its colour and form and how it carries the psychological imprint of its time," the photographer says and you can see how this approach informs this series in particular which has a seeming overarching obsession with transience.
