Michael Zimmerer’s Disappearing Horizon

Photographer Michael Zimmerer‘s series White Horizon captures a Midwest white-out.  Zimmerer’s stark images capture a landscape shortly after a snow storm in which the horizon seems to disappear.  Even the sun is lost in the sky.  The expansive fields of white are interrupted by the dark shapes of buffalo, river, rock, or trees.  A nearly abstract quality is lent to the photographs more often seen on the canvas.  However, the subject matter – the untouched snow, clear rivers, wild animals – also seems to emphasize the absence of the human hand and its loneliness.
