Gary Washington started his journey shooting fashion shows and later developed a passion for fine art photography, traveling to places like Germany, France, Italy and Spain. Gary gained experience, creativity and inspiration, which easily translates, to his work today.

As a result, Gary's photographs represent forgotten places, locations which were once inhabited, celebrated by people but now empty and deserted. These landscapes and architectures, present a particular time, during a worldwide pandemic, where people can no longer engage in the simple beauties of life. Gary's photographs embody locations without man's interaction due to the fears of a virus that are evolving around the world. Gary's work takes the perspective of people looking through a window at places they can no longer go.
