Surprisingly Beautiful Photographs from the Roofs of Parking Garages


Upstate New York-based photographer Wilson Cummer captures an urban scene that others might overlook — the world from the vantage of a parking garage. In the project’s statement, he writes, “Some urban planners have argued that parking garages destroy the architectural assets of urban cores… but I have found unexpected visual joy in parking garages. They offer an urban version of the hikes and sublime views that lead me to the Adirondack mountains… The roofs offer unusual views of nearby buildings and far-off valleys and hills. The tops of garages are places of surprising beauty and calm.” Indeed.
