Lewis Baltzís black-and-white images of parking lots, office parks,

industrial garage doors and the backs of anonymous warehouses

helped forge a new tradition of American landscape photography

in an age of urban sprawl.

 

His stark, geometric photographs

conveyed a kind of creeping soullessness

in the man-made landscape of Southern California,

where he was raised.
