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.
