Scott Alberg’s Summaville is an investigation of a master-planned Las Vegas neighborhood begun in the 1980’s under the proposed and later rejected name of Summaville, a place meant to be a “summary city” evoking past, present and future. The series includes abstractions, surfaces, found objects, and empty landscapes photographed over a period of ten years following the recession, ultimately leaving the viewer with a lingering sense of alienation as he walks through the anomalous occurrences described by Alberg’s photographs.

Scott Alberg ​(b. 1975) lives in Boston, Massachusetts. He holds an M.F.A. degree from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and a B.A. in Art History from Boston University. He has exhibited at Project Basho, Photographic Resource Center, Aviary Gallery, New England School of Photography, Oni Gallery, and Washington Street Art Center.

Alberg teaches photography at Framingham High School in Framingham, Massachusetts. He has previously taught at Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Cheyenne High School (North Las Vegas, NV) and Acton-Boxborough Regional High School. He previously worked at the Polaroid Collection in Cambridge, MA and Gateway Arts in Brookline, MA.
