A cinematic quality to American photographer James Casebere’s interior, modelled, subject matter. For full clarification of his themes go to Blogroll for a link to his site.

‘For the last thirty years Casebere has consistently devised increasingly complex models and photographed them in his studio. Based solidly on an understanding of architecture as well as art historical and cinematic sources, Casebere’s abandoned spaces are hauntingly evocative.  His table-sized constructions are made of simple materials, pared down to essential forms. ‘ From Casbere’s biography on his website.
