'The Space Around' by Gavin Stewart Explores a People-Free Landscape

An empty basketball court or paved road isn't frightening at face value, but the people-free landscapes Gavin Stewart photographs for 'The Space Around' certainly have an eerie quality to them. Each area, whether it's a parking lot, alleyway or backyard of a house, is completely devoid of people.

Considering the amount of traffic most of these areas get during the daytime, their stark emptiness at night is disconcerting, to say the least. Check out more images of Gavin Stewart's 'The Space Around' above. Stats for Eerie Empty Suburbia Trending: Older & Mild
