photo-eye Gallery is thrilled to debut two new works from prominent black-and-white landscape photographer Mitch Dobrowner, Shiprock, 2018 and Volcano and Skeleton (above). Dobrowner's view of the western landscape is often heroic, photographing striking geological structures as he seems to celebrate both their monumental form and resilience over time. His images are reverent, yielding an expression of Dobrowner's own respect for the beauty and importance of the land. We asked Mitch to share a few words about one of his new works, Shiprock, 2018:

Shiprock, 2018 – © Mitch Dobrowner

I  can only describe Shiprock and the area surrounding it as the most spiritual and serene landscapes on the planet (to me). The formation is a volcanic plug that rises 1,600 feet above a barren desert plain south of the San Juan River. Shiprock is called Tsé Bitʼaʼí in Navajo, which means "rock with wings" or simply "winged rock." The formation figures prominently in Navajo Indian mythology as a giant bird that carried the Navajo from the cold northlands to the Four Corners region. Shiprock, when viewed from certain angles, resembles a large sitting bird with folded wings; the north and south summits are the tops of the wings. 
While taking these images I was alone, not a person within sight. It was quiet and I was in awe of what I felt and what I was looking at.  
Shiprock is a sacred mountain to the Navajo Nation.
– Mitch Dobrowner
