Landscape Photography

Landscape Photography inspired by nature in our own backyard of Minnesota. This collection of landscape photography was created in northern Minnesota between the north shore of Lake Superior and Voyageurs National Park. To me, these places are timeless and contain a vast natural beauty that is still wild. The history of these places have a massive time span and multiple cultures, starting over 10,000 years ago when the climate began to stabilize and the Laurentian Glacier melted.

My interest in landscape photography and nature photography is inspired by many of the great photographers of our modern society, including Ansel Adams. Although Adams mostly photographed with a 4×5 view camera using black & white film, he did keep up on the latest technology and believed that the future of photography would become electronic somehow. My interest in landscape photography also comes from a strong belief that humans need to be more closely involved with nature in order to stay connected with the earth physically and mentally. Our society has created a detached way of functioning that is clearly obvious living in an urban environment. The further I venture away from my urban home, the more connected I feel with nature and the earth.
