These are some samples of a set of stunning landscape photographs out west by the photographer Jesse Chehak. The Morning News has an interview with Chehak, who is someone I didn’t know about until coming across their slideshow. Go there for larger, more vibrant versions of the reduced-size images sampled below. I’m taken by the Primm, NV, one the most. Something about the modern clash of color and mountain and angles and fabrication amidst/against the scale of sky. There’s also a lot to be said about the Rio Blanco one, with the dead deer in front of the fenceline, in the foreground against the background’s only-barely-visible highway.
