Born and raised in Long Island, New York, Dobrowner began his photography career the moment his father gave him an old Argus rangefinder. At the age of twenty-one, 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. Since 2009, Dobrowner has chased extreme weather across the United States. His work exudes a reverenced solemnity for American vistas and wonder for tumultuous meteorological events.
All the images presented have been captured on a combination of either 35mm black & white film and/or digitally. Most of my work now is now digitally. All darkroom work is performed in a dry darkroom with minimal dodging and burning. Prints are produced using 100% archival cotton rag paper with pigment inks.
