Baltz (verb) — To take photographs in the style of Lewis Baltz. In particular, black and white photographs of industrial parks.

Baltzy (adjective) — Used to describe neighborhoods which show potential for baltzing expeditions. Also used to describe the results of said expeditions.

My previously-posted work is very baltzy and is from the same neighborhood around my workplace as these shots. Come to think of it, I’ve never not worked in a baltzy neighborhood. no wonder this type of work just feels like home to me.
