Letha Wilson‘s work uses imagery from the natural world as a starting point for interpretation, construction and confrontation. A broad range of techniques and materials are used – photography, sculpture, installation, concrete, wood – in work that blurs the lines between abstraction and representation, landscape and architecture. The ability for a photograph to transport the viewer is both called upon, and questioned; sculptural intervention attempts to compensate for the photograph’s failure to encompass the physical site it represents. Landscape photography as a genre is approached with equal parts reverence and skepticism. Letha Wilson’s work is on view at Art in General until June 29th. She is currently represented by Higher Pictures in New York City. All images below courtesy of Letha Wilson.

As temperatures drop and northern regions begin to freeze over, it can be difficult to find the inspiration to create. When photographer Henrik Knudsen found himself caught on the road in the middle of a winter storm in upstate New York, he began photographing the people in the cars around him and the whiteout environment he found himself in along a stretch of NY-28, from the Catskills to North Country. The resulting “North Country” series, “became a meditation on isolation and disorientation in the middle of a storm,” Knudsen says.

Shooting along the North Shore of Hawaii, Little uses a waterproof camera setup and swim fins to capture a unique and often dangerous perspective of waves from the inside out. His award-winning work has been published in National Geographic, Geo, Sierra, The New York Times and other publications. It has been exhibited in Japan, Brazil, Canada and throughout the US, including at the Smithsonian Museum. Commercial clients include Apple, HP, Nike, Toyota, Nikon among others.

Yassine Ouhilal is a photographer, filmmaker and explorer from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. He is a regular contributor to The Surfer’s Journal and Surfer Magazine as well as other surf publications from around the world. He prefers shooting in difficult to reach and uncharted destinations over the typical go-to tropical hotspots of the surfing world. He uses his knowledge of marine charts, geological maps, satellite imagery, weather forecasting and a love for time on the road in order to be at the right place at the right time in some very inhospitable places.
These forays have taken him to places like Norway’s Arctic circle, Morocco’s coastal Sahara desert, the Faroe Islands, Iceland and Russia in search of seldom seen vistas of perfect waves amidst dramatic backdrops.
Ouhilal explains, ” I approach my surf photography work as a long-term project, which starts with researching a particular location of interest, looking at weather patterns, logistical details. Sometimes, years will go by until one of these locations becomes suitable for shooting with the right swell and weather patterns. Other times, I’ve gone back numerous times in order to get ‘The shot’ I see in my mind.” Ouhilal’s extra effort has produced unique images that have set themselves apart from more typical destinations. “I really try to give a sense of place in my photography by juxtaposing backdrops with the surfing element, be it a surfer or an empty wave. Many factors have to come into play for that to happen, like the right weather conditions, and when they all come together, it creates a very special and moment.”

On Nick’s first session on the island, nearly an entire village came out to watch as I was shooting from a boat. After he successfully rode his first wave, the Captain’s cell phone rang. It was from one of the villagers. He said something in Faroese: ‘He’s still alive’.” All captions by Yassine Ouhilal.
