Chromosphere by Mitch Dobrowner
New storm images from Mitch Dobrowner

"After being on the road for close to a week, driving close to 5000 miles, we started this day near Bismark, North Dakota. After driving 3 hours (approx 200 miles) we first caught sight of this storm in the early afternoon. Standing in a farm field in Timber Lake, South Dakota we watched as the storm began to take shape, watching as its structure became more evident. To me these storms act like living, breathing beings; they are born when the conditions are right, they gain strength as they grow (ie: a baby), they turn violent and unpredictable as they start to mature - just as a young adult would (or at least like I did). They mature and stabilize and eventually age out and die." —Mitch Dobrowner, on the storm pictured in Chromosphere

"We are pleased to announce that Mitch Dobrowner's 2012 Storm photographs are now available. It has been quite a year for Dobrowner, he won 2012 Sony World Photographer of the Year, National Geographic Magazine ran a ten-page spread devoted his storm work and his urban series was featured in Intelligent Life Magazine by The Economist, and Aperture will be releasing a book of his images next fall." —from Anne Kelly's post on the photo-eye Blog.

Linda Connor's prints from the Lick Observatory

"Linda Connor is one of the seven photographers included in our current exhibit, Solar. The exhibition includes a very unique selection of visions of the sun, conceptually, visually and technically. Linda Connor's contribution are a magical selection of beautifully printed gold-toned solar eclipse images printed from glass plate negatives from the archive of the Lick Observatory in California, most of which were recorded by the observatory between 1890-1920. Connor's prints are exposed by the sun on printing-out paper from the original glass plate negatives, which were made by a variety of important photographers including E.E. Barnard. In her own images, Connor is known for her imagery of the ancient and sacred. She has traveled extensively in India, the American Southwest, Nepal, Thailand and beyond, recording images with her 8x10 view camera. The other day I asked Connor to share a little more of the story behind her images printed from the archives of the Lick Observatory. Though I already know a great deal about Connor and her work, I really enjoyed hearing the full story, and by the time our conversation was over I had scribbled several pages of notes." —from Anne Kelly's post on the photo-eye Blog

 photo-eye Book Reviews
Chris McCaw: Sunburn

"I was both excited and apprehensive to learn that Chris McCaw's photography was being published in his first monograph, Sunburn. I've been a fan of his one-of-a-kind photographic objects for a while now, and was nervous about how the images would translate to the printed page. The physicality of the sun-scorched burn across (and often through) his photographs is integral to the experience and because I've seen the real thing, I was uncertain that someone who hasn't could appreciate what they are looking at. Would the book pull it off?" — from David Ondrik's review of Sunburn by Chris McCaw

Mikhael Subotzky: Retinal Shift

"The first thing one notices about Mikhael Subotzky's Retinal Shift is its size. At 490 pages, two inches thick, and weighing just over 5 pounds, Retinal Shift is among more mammoth photobooks I've encountered. To get a sense of the dimensions think of Magnum Degrees or Magnum Landscapes. Or just think of the word Magnum, which identifies Subotzky as well as his tome. Publisher Steidl has not held much back here." — from Blake Andrews' review of Retinal Shift by Mikhael Subotzky

Rob Hornstra: Kiev

"Kiev, the latest in the sketchbook series from the on-going Sochi Project by Rob Hornstra and Arnold van Bruggen, features images taken by Hornstra with a 1970s Kiev camera. A gift from a friend in Sochi, the Ukrainian built medium-format SLRs were known for being almost exact clones of pricier models, but also for Soviet-era manufacturing defects. My dad actually had one of these cameras. As a child, I was intrigued by its size and Soviet-sounding name. For Hornstra, the appeal lay in photographing Sochi with a camera that had seen it in the 1970s and how such a camera can change the act of seeing." — from Sarah Bradley's review of Kiev by Rob Hornstra
