"I get into a ‘zone’ where time and space seem hard for me to measure." Inspired by his love of storms, LA based photographer Mitch Dobrowner set out to track and photograph these breathtakingly beautiful natural phenomena, driving over 5700 miles across ten mid-western states.

This project has got my mind working overtime and has rejuvenated my faith in analog photography. My favorite part is watching smoke come out of the camera during the exposure!

San Francisco based photographer Chris McCaw began experimenting with burning film by means of long exposures and the sun. Through trial and error, he began using vintage fiber-based gelatin-silver black-and-white photographic paper, putting it in the film holder in place of film and creating a unique paper negative print. In long exposures the sun actually burns through the paper, creating this unique body of work.

Never would I think I could fall more in love with black and white photography, but it has happened.

All this makes me think of John Constable.


The sky is the 'source of light' in nature, and governs every thing. Even our common observations on the weather of every day, are suggested by them......

We see nothing truly till we understand it.

The world is wide; no two days are alike, nor even two hours; neither were there ever two leaves of a tree alike since the creation of the world.

There is nothing ugly; I never saw an ugly thing in my life: for let the form of an object be what it may, — light, shade, and perspective will always make it beautiful.
