The beautiful black & white storm photographs of Mitch Dobrowner are featured in a slideshow on the CNN photo blog. Dobrowner has been chasing storms all through the west and Midwest for four years, and he has seen everything from monsoons to tornados and massive supercell thunderstorms. Working in the tradition of the great black & white landscape masters, Dobrowner’s work manages to reflect a contemporary aesthetic, documenting the power and beauty of nature while still managing on occasion to deliver minimal, abstract images. If you’d like to own your own small slice of Dobrowner’s work, you’re in luck. Visit the Aperture foundation to purchase his new book, Storms, which includes more than 50 large format photographs and is offered at quite a reasonable price.
