Mitch Dobrowner (b. 1956 Bethpage, NY) derives his inspiration from the natural world, and from the masters of landscape photography who have captured it before him, in particular, Ansel Adams and Minor White. Dobrowner began photographing the landscape of the American West in 2005, and since then, storms have become one of his main subjects. Although Dobrowner's work is widely exhibited, collected and published in periodicals, this is the first book featuring his storm photographs. In the artist's words: "The Earth is an ever changing ego-system. It’s existed well before we were here, and will hopefully be here well beyond the time leave it. It’s real, at times beautifully surreal, powerfully haunting and alive all at the same time. When photographing, While photographing, the world gets quiet around me….. Things seem simple again – and I obtain a respect and reverence for the world that is hard to communicate through words. I get into a ‘zone’ where time and space seem hard for me to measure. For me those moments are a combination of the exterior environment and my interior combining. Hopefully the images presented help communicate what I visualize during those times."
