An ongoing minimal photography project inspired by the 70s New Topographic Movement.

The series are a following up from Eric D Vries’ series ‘The Great Outdoors - American Landscapes 93-97’ re-issued last year and shot mainly in SE Asia and Hong Kong. The idea was to go back to minimal less edited photographs in a digital world bombarded with editing apps and overdone post-productions.

The project’s pictures depict structural details and overviews of (abandoned) buildings and landscapes, uncommon items, lines and shapes. Geometry and framing the pictures perfectly for the viewer to use their imagination for a total frame of the scene.

‘Interruption of Common Structures’ is part of a trilogy together with the water towers series and a project showing the changing of landscapes in his hometown (Unfinished Realities) totally shot on medium format film.
