Monument Valley, 2014, Archival Pigment Print, 20x30 inches, Edition of 40, $4500
Mitch Dobrowner’s landscape photography is elegant, bold, and powerfully composed. His black-and-white images have an incredible range of value and tone that captures the majesty of nature in a vivid, luminous style. photo-eye Gallery is proud to feature Dobrowner’s Monument Valley and Fly Geyser from his series Still Earth in our 2019 Group Show on view through April 20, 2019.

The artist’s deep, personal connection to each of the landscapes he photographs is legible in the work. Dedication to finding, observing, and personally resonating with a specific location is vital to Dobrowner’s landscape practice, and is clearly visible in the care that goes into composing and printing his images. He patiently waits for the right moment, capturing fleeting instants like when a cloud nestles into the curve of a mountainside only for a minute, or when sunlight slants across the shapes of desert buttes and mesas for a few, perfect seconds.

Dobrowner says of his work:
The Earth is an ever-changing ecosystem. It existed well before we were here and will hopefully be here well beyond the time we leave it. It’s real, at times beautifully surreal, powerfully haunting and alive all at the same time.


In both Monument Valley and Fly Geyser there is a play between intimacy and vastness as the desert monuments and towering spray of water unfold before the artist's lens. When looking at the work I am reminded of the grand scale of our planet: of how long it takes the wind to carve intricate desert formations, how slowly a geyser erodes the face of stone, and how long those monuments will outlast my own time on this earth. For me, that is truly the power of Dobrowner’s photographs. They connect the viewer to the immensity and ephemeral beauty of nature in a way that feels universal, yet personal and intimate.
