There is a beautiful longing to the Wish You Were Here series that will certainly resonate with everyone. There are always moments in life in which you find yourself alone witnessing a spectacular scene of some sort and wishing that you could share it with someone. Considering that these awe-inspiring moments are often too far and few in between, these images become even more desperate and poignant in their emotion.

Shot by Brooklyn-based photographer Stewart Isbell, the Wish You Were Here series has a similar tone to his Then Quietly They Came series. It is as though he is attracted to epic scenes that anticipate something quite momentous, yet there is also something quiet and eerie about his work as well.
