Eerie Cityscapes Served Daily: An Instagram Account You Must Follow

Chicago scene photographed by Jason Peterson.

The photography of Jason Peterson is currently getting its props with an exhibition at the Royalton Hotel in New York City—the guy takes amazing pictures, and some of them are of NYC, to be sure. But this photographer essentially lives on Instagram. He shoots a lot in Chicago. He shoots some in New York. And he shoots wherever else he goes—the physical location isn’t all that important, really. Through an abundance of talent, he is able to extract Jason-Peterson-esque images from every setting. These are often high-contrast black-and-whites, with a lot more black than white. Often desolate or inhabited by a single figure. At times he seems to be channelling Frank Miller’s Sin City aesthetic; at other times it goes back much further, to Fritz Lang’s Metropolis perhaps. But at all times, he is simply delivering extremely well composed black-and-white cityscapes that don’t need to be saddled with anyone else’s narrative. They’re great pictures, whether you see Frank or Fritz or none-of-the above in them.
