Catherine Couturier Gallery opening reception: Mitch Dobrowner: That Rare Land

Catherine Couturier Gallery

Fresh off the heals of his 2012 Sony World Photography L'Iris d'Or Photographer of the Year award, Mitch Dobrowner ventured outside of his native shores and into the Nordic wilds of Iceland to capture his newest series. Dobrowner's work exudes a reverenced solemnity for American vistas in his Landscape series and the tumultuous elegance of the elements in his Storms series, selections of which will also be on view in That Rare Land.

Born and raised on Long Island, Dobrowner began his photography career the moment his father gave him an old Argus rangefinder. At the age of 21, he quit his job and toured the American Southwest, finding inspiration in the limitlessness of the natural landscapes and the photography of artists like Ansel Adams and Minor White. 

Dobrowner's photographs are on display in galleries and museums around the globe, including the Ordover Gallery at the San Diego Natural History Museum, the Photography Museum of China in Lishui and the Photo-Eye Gallery of Santa Fe. Additionally, they have been featured in publications such as Newsweek, LensWork, Wired Magazine and National Geographic.

On view through March 22.
