Cody Cobb (b. 1984) is an American photographer based in Seattle, Washington. His photography attempts to capture portraits of the Earth’s surface, devoid of human interaction and interference.
Why do you photograph on film?
By carrying a small point and shoot film camera, I can quickly capture my observations without completely interrupting my experience. Without being weighed down by equipment and the preoccupation of making an image, I am able to move more freely.
What is your work about?
Photography is my way of capturing the Earth’s surface and atmosphere as it folds, condenses and erodes. These observations are made while roaming the landscapes of the American West in search of seemingly untouched nature. With careful composition and natural light, these Earthly formations appear to exist in an alternate and mysterious dimension.
