Rusty Wiles is a Florida native, who serves as a firefighter and paramedic. Five years ago, he downloaded Instagram and began to shoot – inspired by the accessibility of the platform.
Since then, he has shot minimalist photography, revelling in bright, vivid subjects around the state. The East Coast sunlight shines directly on seemingly one-dimensional planes, transforming real architecture into render-like digital art.
His images capture the early morning light in Cocoa Beach – accentuating the sunrise through cloudless skies and coloured buildings. Each composition takes angles, planes and lines into account, taken spontaneously before moving onto new locations.
