Looking like some kind of dreamscape instead of wildfire photography, this new series capturing the smoke of controlled wildfires is beautifully picturesque.
Seduced by the scenes of wildfires, California-based photographer Young Suh follows firefighters in the American West to scenes of wildfires to create this dreamy painterly photograph series.
"I am seduced by these scenes. Or, rather, I am seduced by the disappearance of them. The scenes are picturesque, but the disappearance of the landscape is sublime. I think the notion of the sublime implies blindness. It is an overwhelming sense of loss," says Suh about his wildfire photography.
The 'Wildfires' series takes viewers on a journey to vernacular landscapes immersed in smoke where Suh does an amazing job of capturing it in both an engineered and wildly free way.
