I’m interested in capturing the essence of a moment and stripping it down to its fundamental elements. I look for the stillness in the busyness, the silences on the periphery of the day’s commotion. These photographs were all taken in busy settings: a street corner in San Francisco, a research facility in Boulder, Colorado, and a bookstore in Petaluma, California at the height of the holiday season. I choose a minimalist approach because I want to eradicate distraction, distill the moment in its unique intensity and energy.


Thomas Gillaspy is a northern California photographer with an interest in urban minimalism. Further information about his work and publications are available at:
