Western Realty

By digitally singling out old and neglected building across the western United States, photographer Ed Freeman challenges us to discover these architectural structures with fresh eyes. It’s a series so brilliantly executed. Turns out, beauty was in front of us this entire time.

  2. These pictures are such a trip! Just isolated buildings. So interesting to see other realities. I’m so used to seeing buildings cramped together that this kinda gives me an eery feeling

    I love the simplicity and calm in these photos. The isolation reminds me of the movie Legion with Paul Bettany. The photos speak to a faded and lost period of time. You have a beautiful, natural background and this odd almost desolate nod to humanity in it. It triggers memories of my childhood in the 70’s in the Arizona and California mountains and deserts.

  14. The Western Realty catalog are an amazing group of images. Nice job. I have to admit though, they do make me feel a bit sad. So many dreams that didn’t work out
