If you want to invest in some art to spruce up your new interior décor you might like these two photographs by Ed Freeman. He is based in the United States and drives tens of thousands of miles all over the Western United States searching for that perfect picture which he then manipulates and refines. These are two examples of his work from the Western Reality series; El Rancho Motel which has a vacancy and is situated in Ely Nevada and the Gem Theatre in Pioche Nevada – $2000 each from Saatchi Art.
