Todd Eberle’s precise, analytical style reveals America’s soul

Todd Eberle is an acclaimed New York City based photographer who has focused his lens on both art and architecture since breaking into prominence in the early 1990s— most famously gaining international recognition for photographing Donald Judd’s art and furniture. After looking back at some of Todd’s projects, we were struck by the precise portraits of America’s architecture and landscape which act collectively to reveal observations on a society unified by a distinct, minimalist architectural identity.

A common theme persistent in all Todd’s photography is the style and method in which he approaches the subject. The viewer gets the sense that Todd was – and has always been – in total control of every element within the frame, emphasising a symmetry which transforms the figurative into the abstract.
