Looking through the portfolio of Ed Panar gives the impression that the Pennsylvanian-based photographer must always have his camera with him. His work is a rich collection of simple scenes, captured moments and striking landscapes that reveal a great beauty in the mundane and the often ignored corners of our cities and countryside.
For me there’s a strange sense of melancholy in his work which feels quite powerful. The majority of his cityscapes are empty of people and these images seem to really amplify the scale of the places we inhabit.
Panar is the author of five books as well as being the co-founder of Spaces Corners, an artist-run photobook gallery and project space in Pittsburgh. You can check out more work on his website here or head over here to find a list of his Tumblr accounts if you’d like to follow his work.
