Recent Suburban Photographs


Home Flag – South Weber, UT – Fujifilm X-Pro2 & 60mm

I mentioned in yesterday’s urban photography post that I love photographing in downtown environments. However, where I live and where I experience day-to-day life is in the suburbs, which is a place where a lot of people live and experience life. There’s a pretty good chance that you live in the suburbs, too.

William Eggleston is perhaps the best known suburban photographer. He captured the mundane life found in the bedroom neighborhoods of Memphis, and, while not originally well-received, his work is now highly celebrated. There is beauty in the ordinary if you look for it, and he certainly found it.

It’s difficult to get excited about photographing the suburbs. It seems so boring. It seems so humdrum. But there are plenty of interesting things all around if you take a moment to look for them. If you live in the suburbs, it’s an easy subject to photograph because you are already there, no travel required. Just take a walk around your neighborhood with your camera in hand.

The photographs in this article, most of which are straight-out-of-camera JPEGs, were captured recently using a Fujifilm X100F, X-Pro2 and X-E1. Like the previous post, none of these pictures were previously shared on this blog. As I was grouping images together, I noticed that these fit nicely with each other, so I made an article out of them. Enjoy!

      It’s a fun lens. I sold it, though, when I sold an X-E1.
