Photographer Shane Ellis Vincent captures urban utility poles in a whole new light. He essentially turns them into artistic sculptures, almost as if they were modern day's version of totem poles. Through the use of contrasting bright and dreary colors as well as abstract compositions, Shane Ellis Vincent turns the ordinary into the extraordinary.

Based in London, England, Shane Ellis Vincent has been shooting streetlights, telephone poles and electricity pylons since July of this year. Beautifully stylized, his images encourage his viewers to use their active imaginations to fill in some blanks. Since Shane Ellis Vincent focuses on rather minimalist photography, his images can easily stand for something else. One pole can be visualized as a spider while another can look like a pyramid.
