A collection of images that represent intimacy and joy, the new series from photographer James Needham takes a step back from the individual elements that make up a scene. By retreating from those simple lines, shapes, and colors that are the usual focus of his camera, Needham creates images seemingly from nowhere that immediately feel comfortable and familiar. Announcement to an Empty Street is an exploration of that concept of “magical confusion” author F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote about — of seeing “one city within another.” Vibrant hues juxtapose with a smattering of run-down buildings and crooked road signs across America to create this “magical confusion” for viewers, instilling a sense of delight when places previously unfamiliar become joyfully familiar, like meeting someone you feel you’ve known your whole life.

“There’s a limited amount of space within a viewfinder or on a canvas and what someone chooses to fill it with says so much about them and what they were feeling at the time. It’s like a Rorschach test we create ourselves.”
