With so much hustle and bustle involved with the big cities around the world, it's hard to imagine there is so much simplistic beauty, as is seen in these images by Claire Harlan. The young shutterbug thrives when shooting landscape photography, and is quickly gaining a reputation for her work.

Using various urban settings for her backdrops, Claire Harlan captures minimalist surroundings within an urban center. Inspired by landscapes and photography, Harlan naturally combined the two. Within the Claire Harlan photos are powerful images of industrialization juxtaposed with serenity. The photos utilize minimal light, none of which is added by Harlan. Her spatial compositioning is outstanding, finding unique settings to capture the most stunning image. Even her shot of the cornfield shows a simplistic beauty that is hard to exude with a photograph.

No doubt Harlan has a bright future, as long as her photography continues to excite and intrigue its viewers.
