Mitch Dobrowner:Fly Geyser
Dobrowner’s new image, released this week, is another capture of the way he perceives the surreal beauty of his subjects. Fly Geyser freezes us in this serene moment in time and helps us take a deep breath, slow down and feel our humanity in the vast terrain of life. I hope it brings a quiet peacefulness to you this holiday season.

Edition of 45, $2500
Mitch Dobrowner has been facing storms with his camera in hand for the last ten years. I asked him what it’s like to weather storms of such magnitude, and what he’s learned from them. His reply reminded me of a line from a poem by Ranier Maria Rilke, “Let everything happen to you, beauty and terror. Just keep going.” Mitch says people often focus on the fear of such a living organism, but he sees each storm for its individual, fleeting existence and feels the beauty of the moments as they pass by him. Dobrowner, who is humbled to a child-like wonder in these experiences, recalls his excitement and hunger in capturing the images when he first began. Now, ten years into this calling, he describes a more zen-like state of peace. Something has taught him to be sensitive to the moment, understanding it will never return. Through it, he’s learned to wait for the light and look with refined focus.

"The terrain of the Black Rock Desert, Nevada is an area that I have always wanted to explore. In November of this year I finally got the chance. The area is sparsely inhabited with the largest town being Gerlach - population of 100. 
Humans have inhabited the Black Rock Desert since approximately 11,000 BC. The large black rock formation was used as a landmark by early settlers and emigrants that initially crossed and settled in the area. At its base is a large hot spring and grassy meadow, which was an important place for those crossing the desert headed for California and Oregon. In the mid-1800's John Fremont and his party were the first white men to cross this desert. That trail be was used by over half the 22,000 gold seekers headed to California after 1849. This history of the early settlers has always intrigued me.

During the time I was there the temperatures varied wildly. I saw 50 and 60 degrees during the day.... but as soon as the sun dipped below the horizon the temperatures dropped quickly. Within 15 minutes temperatures would move from the mid-50's to between 10 and 15 degrees.  
The image describes, more then I can in words, my experience of the landscape of the Black Rock Desert. Its a rugged, isolated, beautiful, geothermalactive desert landscape."
