Robert Schlaug is a photographer who isn’t completely satisfied with purely natural landscapes, or urban landscapes for that matter. In this series titled, ‘Where The Sidewalk Ends,’ the photographer explores a variety of landscapes from pastoral meadows, to serene lakes, to concrete plains. However, Robert Schlaug is not looking merely for some pleasant haunt.

The photographs are well composed, the framing is sharp, the lighting is just right and the color-composition is harmonious. What sets these photographs apart, however, is how each scene abruptly ends or begins with a sharply defined streaks of color. It is though one were looking at these landscapes on a monitor when suddenly their computer began to crash.

Through these photographs, Robert Schlaug demonstrates how the abrupt and jarring can sometimes be beautiful and elegant.
