The Shape Series by Tierney Gearon, a photographer based in Los Angeles, California, revolves around the use of vibrant plexiglass materials that have been formed into geometric shapes, hence the name of the series. Yet these modern sculptures are not shot in the typical abstract way a person may initially assume they would be. First of all, children and animals have been placed within their confines. Secondly, they have been placed in random landscapes for greater contrast.

Shot for the New York Times Magazine, the Shape Series by Tierney Gearon is at once surreal and artistic. It not only questions reality, it also stimulates people's imaginations. What do the images mean? Are they acting like alternate universes or portals to different dimensions? The possibilities abound, which is exciting.
