The Art of Parking Structures

Los Angeles, California

Many travelers will stop in their tracks to photograph some spectacular scenery. But photographer Ben Marcin will often stop and capture something a little different along his travels…..parking garages! Baltimore based photographer Ben Marcin began photographing parking structures in 2010, while on a trip to Los Angeles.  He found himself drawn to even more while in Houston and Dallas, and now photographs them everywhere he goes.

“There’s a certain sense of genericness that is often associated with the function of these buildings,” the photographer says. “I find [them] beautiful and, occasionally, frightening.”

As mundane as they appear at first, Marcin is able to make these structures oddly beautiful with his camera.
