Editorial Reviews

Review

Dobowner aims to capture storms and other massive landscapes, like "Nibiru Stone", above, a large piece of ice sitting on the Icelandic shoreline, as "living beings, both rational and unpredictable in the way they look, how they move, grow, and die," he says. (Meg Ryan Heery American Photo Magazine 2014-01-01)

"Dobrowner's images concentrate on the natural beauty of storms themselves as they lumber through unoccupied territory." (WIRED 2013-11-01)

This guy doesn't need a weatherman: Throughout the western U.S., he captures electric thunderstorms, ominious funnel clouds, and outright tornadoes in luminous, Ansel Adamsian black and white. (Jack Crager American Photo 2013-11-01)

Power has an intrinsic beauty that inspires awe and fear. With his pictures, Mr. Doborowner has intensified the beauty in these amazing displays of power from mother nature, every shot is a masterpiece. A book to be look at over and over again.

Received my copy of Storms by Mitch Dobrowner, which is a hardcover book in wide format print, containing beautiful images of Storms all across the country. The opening is a bit "strange" ... but the section written by Dobrowner himself is excellent. He details how he does what he does - which is beautiful and inspiring. Recommend this as something you will look through again and again. Also - the kids loved it, too.

Mitch Dobrowner has given us 51 splendid black and white images of thunderstorms. These are well done in wide format. The beauty and power of the storms is well depicted. Several of the images include tornadoes. The Introduction is by Gretel Ehrlich and is a beautiful artsy evocation of thunderstorms. The Afterwood is by Mitch himself, and gives his history and joy in photographing thunderstorms.

The locations are from the Great West, South Dakota, Nebraska, Texas, Kansas, Montana and other states in between. From Mitch's Afterword, it appears he and a storm chasing friend would locate a developing storm and drive hundreds of miles all day watching it develop, mature, and age, taking photographs the whole time. Mitch says they would many times drive upwards of 7,000 to 9,000 miles in 10 days chasing the storms. The images prove it was worth the effort.

Living in Nebraska, and having watched and lived through storms all my life, I can appreciate the beauty and the power of these storms that Mitch has taken portraits of.

Mitch ends his Afterword with "My job is to capture a portrait of each storm I encounter, an image that does each storm justice as if the storm were a person, who I got to spend a day with to make a portrait. I want to get a photograph of a storm that I can hold up to the storm, and say, "What do you think? And the storm we be, like, "Okay, you got me!" And I agree, Mitch got the personality of each storm right.

Inspired by the iconic work of Ansel Adams, Mitch Dobrowner contributes a new genre of landscape photography - powerful majestic black and white images of nature in full fury. Mesmemerizing, beautiful work.

Format: Hardcover
As someone who has loved weather all his life and grew up in Western Nebraska, I was excited when I saw this book, espcially after the crazy and unfortunately tragic 2013 storm season.

Dowbrowner has put together an absolutely fantastic book. The prints are more than breath taking. I myself have chased storms and know how difficult and sometimes precarious it can be getting into position for just the right shots. Dowbrowner somehow managed in a few short years with no chasing background to capture, Ansel Adams style shots of amazing weather phenomena.

Additionally, when buying photography books or coffee table books the authors notes and writing are mostly just annoying and frankly boring, sort of like asking a writer to illustrate their own book covers, usually it just doesn't work. However I found myself wanting to read more of his dissertation into his photographic journey throughout the Midwest. It was done perfectly.

If you are at all a fan of storms, photography, or simply amazing shots you would want framed prints of hanging all over you house, get this book!

I love this book! Only wish there were a few more tornado pictures but the composition is awesome and I love the black and white. Mitch Dobrowner did a great job capturing the feeling of these storms and I am impressed with the book..

Mitch Dobrowner is a big fan of Ansel Adams, and it shows. These views of storms are epic, romantic, and overwhelming. I love it! No one out there has photographed storms in this way, it's quite amazing stuff.
