Mitch Dobrowner: Storms

Published by Aperture
Introduction by Gretel Ehrlich.

Mitch Dobrowner has been chasing storms since 2009, traveling throughout Western and Midwestern America to capture nature in its full fury. Making photographs in the tradition of Ansel Adams, to the highest standard of craftsmanship, Dobrowner creates extraordinary black-and-white images of monsoons, tornados and massive thunderstorms conjure awe and wonder. As Dobrowner states in the book's afterword, "I experience storms as living beings, organic things, both rational and unpredictable in the way they look, how they move, grow and die. Every storm is different; each has a unique character. My job is to capture a 'portrait' of each storm I encounter, an image that does each one justice as if the storm was a person." Dobrowner's photographs been published widely by magazines, including National Geographic, Time and the Los Angeles Times. They are introduced here by Gretel Ehrlich, the American travel writer and poet, who creates her own images, in words, that evoke the stormy spirit of the American West.
Mitch Dobrowner (born in Bethpage, New York, 1956) 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.

STAFF REVIEW

Mitch Dobrowner travels throughout the U.S. capturing nature in its full fury, making extraordinary images of monsoons, tornados and massive thunderstorms. His astounding black-and-white photographs are very much in the tradition of Ansel Adams, functioning as both tributes to the majestic power of nature and also to the sheer magnitude of the American landscape.
Dobrowner travels with Roger Hill, a professional 'storm chaser' who works for the Weather Channel. They work in the area known as Tornado Alley--the center of the US between Rocky Mountains in the west and Appalachian Mountains in the east--as well as "Dixie Alley" in the south east.
The photographs beautifully and ominously articulate the terror and incipient destruction of hurricanes and tornados. "My passion is photographing landscapes in the nastiest weather I can possibly find," Dobrowner writes. "So the natural question for me was: why not try to 'experiment' and chase after the nastiest storm systems possible as an extension of my landscape work?" These photographs have already received major attention: National Geographic published a ten-page article titled "Epic Storms" in July 2012, and they have been featured in Time and on NPR's website. The American travel writer, poet and essayist Gretel Ehrlich contributes an essay; she has a rare connection to the wrath of storms as she herself was once hit by lightning, and wrote a book about the experience called A Match to the Heart (1994). The book itself is deluxe and large-format, but also affordable.
