Mitch Dobrowner: “Still Earth” | Talks at Google

Since picking up a camera after a 20-year hiatus, Mitch Dobrowner has done much more than make up for lost time; he’s secured a place for himself in the annals of landscape photography. He shoots, for the most part, in remote locations, and in the case of his dramatic storm pictures, he seeks out, chases and braves weather conditions from which most of us would run. But beyond getting himself to the right place at the right time, Dobrowner brings with him an artist’s passion and a scientist’s understanding—both of what he sees and how the camera sees—as well as a fair amount of blood, sweat and, presumably, joyful tears.​ ​In an age when black-and-white landscape photography is too often considered anachronistic, photographer Mitch Dobrowner literally never wavers from his monochromatic view of the world, as he makes images literally unlike any that have come before. To call him a landscape photographer may be technically accurate, but it doesn’t do justice to the one-of-a-kind, jaw-dropping images that have ​now ​taken a prominent place in ​the world of fine art photography.

Mitch is represented by galleries world-wide and has had his prints collected by multiple fine art museums in the United States. He has 3 books currently published (by Aperture and 21st Editions) and has also had work shown in National Geographic, The Wall Street Journal, ABC News, CNN, Time Magazine, NPR, Audubon Society, the LA Times and various other publications. ​

“Our job is to record, each in his own way, this world of light and shadow and time that will never come again exactly as it is today.”
Edward Abbey 1927-1989
