Gardeners in the Salt Lake City area are having a moment, thanks to a local photographer who took some incredible photos of some of the city’s most treasured and treasured buildings.
Ricky Tarrant, who is a freelance photographer, started capturing images of Salt Lake’s most iconic buildings in 2017, and is now working with architect Robert Naylor on a book of his work.
Tarrant has shared his work on Instagram, where he said he has received over 200,000 likes.
He said the project was “very rewarding” and has been “the most fun I have ever had to photograph”.
“It was an honour to work with Robert and we’ve had a lot of fun capturing and documenting some of our most iconic Salt Lake buildings.
I’m very proud of the photographs we’ve captured and the photos that have come out of this project,” he said.”
The cityscape is really beautiful and it’s the buildings that are really unique.
It’s just a pleasure to have the opportunity to capture some of these iconic buildings.”
While Tarrance is taking photographs of the buildings and their landscaping, he also likes to take a look back at his own garden in Salt Lake, Utah, and share the experience.
“I love taking pictures of the Salt River Valley and Salt Lake and I love seeing the beautiful architecture and architecture in the valley and the people in the buildings,” he told Newsbeat.
“You look at the architecture, you look at how the people are dressed, the architecture of the houses, you really love seeing it all.”
Tarrance also has a few things he wants to add to his own collection of pictures.
“My wife and I are planning to do some weddings in the next year,” he joked.
“We’re planning to get married at a beautiful hotel in Salt River and we want to see the beautiful landscape that’s going to be there, and so I’m going to do a wedding at a lovely hotel in the city and it is going to happen on a beautiful mountain and the bride is going for a walk and I’m really excited about that.”
