EMERGING TALENT: Cole Rise + His Most-Ethereal Landscapes

 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Next

There has always been something haunting to me about farmland in the off-seasons, when everything is yellow and wilted, or when snow sits quietly in the trenches that are usually full of blooming crops. Cows move minimally through faded landscapes, and the entire thing has an air of melancholy and stillness to it. Capturing this feeling is not easy, unless perhaps you’re photographer Cole Rise. He’s our featured Emerging Talent this week. He shoots with medium format cameras, digital cameras with detached backwards lenses, and spends hours lying in wait in the grass for the perfect shot. Simple, beautiful. Click through the image tabs above to see more examples of his work.

Have you given any kind of consideration at all with translating your web page into French? I know a small number of translaters here that would help you do it for no cost if you want to make contact with me.
