Standing Still: Photographs by Danny Singer is currently on view at the Denver Art Museum in Colorado, USA, until May 22, 2016.
From the press release:
Singer questions that notion of emptiness by revealing subtle, living landscapes of quirky buildings and ordinary people going about their business. Every funny sign, open door, and child on a bicycle has unique significance in the life of the town. Against those backdrops of weather and space, Singer weaves gentle stories about small-town life and the meaning of home.
