Photographs by Minneapolis-based Tuckaghrie Hollingsworth

I just met this young photographer and at first I thought his work looked like eye candy, but it’s not; it’s dreamy.

From his webpage:

“URBAN PARKLAND SERIES Using wayside parks and undeveloped land, Hollingsworth creates images which explore boundaries between pastoral and urban, structure and disorder, color and light. These photographs rely on scarce light sources—a full moon, a dim street lamp, or simply ambient light. Instead of passively brightening the subjects, light imposes order and becomes a palpable force, eliciting lyrical qualities from otherwise mundane landscapes”
