Focusing on nothing in particular, the Christopher Gray Nothing Specific series takes a look at beautiful scenery that demands quiet reflection.
The photographs show breath-taking views, tree trunks, worn down buildings, construction sites, people in silhouette and other striking images that don't have a singular purpose or meaning. Instead, the photographer shows us the beauty in the random and the often overlooked, freezing a moment in time and space, creating a quiet haven that our minds can delve into, escaping the fast-paced world around us.
As we search for meaning and some sort of pattern among the images, as most people want to, the Christopher Gray Nothing Specific series gives us a break.
