Photographer Nick Albertson shows that creativity can be found in the ordinary in his abstract compositions featuring everyday items. By taking many of the same objects and arranging them to fit inside a single frame, Albertson creates amazing patterns that make boring things interesting. His work features objects such as toilet paper, sandwich bags, paper plates, drinking straws, and clothes hangers, which are commonplace enough for many of us to overlook in our daily lives. As the multiple pieces come together as a piece of art, we realize the potential behind the things that we may have dismissed earlier in our experiences.
The photographer describes his vision to Visual News: "Items with little visual intrigue are organized so as to have a powerful aesthetic impact. The tension between the inherent uniformity of the mass-produced everyday materials I engage with and my subsequent arrangement of them drives my practice."
