Christopher Jobson features some new work from Ed Fairburn. Kimberly Li describes the power of his work:

To Fairburn, a street can outline the curve of a smile and the highways can fracture across a solemn face, creating a hauntingly beautiful representation of human expression.

How Eric Giroux puts it:

Remember when you were a kid and you’d look at a map and be like ‘that looks like a dude wearing a chef’s hat’ or some shit? Well Fairburn takes that same sort of imagination to an entirely new level.
