The photographer I chose to imitate is black and white landscape photographer, Chuck Kimmerle. He lives and works in Wyoming and he tends to photograph the “road less traveled” rather than hugely famous locations. Kimmerle is inspired by the everyday and mundane flat plains that many take for granted. I also like to photograph locations that are seen everyday as places to pass through rather than destinations. Kimmerle often goes on road trips to surrounding states, stops, and takes photos along the way. I also recently when on a road trip and took the time to stop in the middle-of-nowhere, and snap a photograph. I took these photographs on my phone and then filtered them into black and white images. While I took some inspiration from his framing and composition, I mostly liked the idea of documenting the places most people wouldn’t stop or take a second look at.
