"The dramatic size and coloration of the print provides an additional layer of experience to the work, akin to my own experience traveling through these spiritual places and witnessing the spectacle firsthand. The color and scale is meant to help enhance recognition, understanding, meaning and empathy for these fragile and threatened landscapes."

David Benjamin Sherry is an American photographer and avid darkroom printer who is challenging and reinvigorating the American Western landscape tradition among other classic genres of photography. His work revolves around interests in the analog film process, environmentalism, color, mysticism, abstraction, human connectedness in the digital age, minimalism and queer politics, and he ultimately aims to reexamine the history of photography. He’s best known for his iconic monochromatic darkroom printed landscapes, a project born from his love of the outdoors and the protected natural landscapes of North America.
