ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

By Lindsay Peyton

West Seattle resident Bruce Savadow has a knack for capturing the little bits of beauty that normally go unnoticed.

The photographer catches the shadow of a child mid-flight on a swing-set and the light reflecting on the surface of a lake. He zooms in and focuses on the sparkles displayed in a water droplet on a table after the rain.

For his newest series, Savadow set his viewfinder on the two Metropolitan Park office buildings, creating numerous compositions out of the graphics of black window frames against the white tiles of the exterior wall.

“I just loved the black and white stripes,” he said. “I first noticed these buildings when I moved here in 1996. Three years ago, I took these shots.”

Savadow ruminated on the project for a couple of decades, when the inspiration to finally take the first step struck. He was stuck at a traffic light.
