Mitch Dobrowner grew up in Long Island, New York. His career in photography began with an old Argus rangefinder given to him by his dad. Aged twenty-one and hugely inspired by Ansel Adams, Dobrowner quit his job to document the American Southwest.
His intention is to convey a living, breathing ecosystem, which has existed far longer than we have and, hopefully, will be here for ages to come. He knows immediately when he has shot a quality image, he says. ‘It as a moment when a sense of time and space is lost, and the exterior environment and my interior world combine.’
Dobrowner’s work has been exhibited across the United States and in France, and received numerous awards, including the National Geographic Society’s Visions of Paradise prize in 2009.
