The photographs of Thomas Joshua Cooper

Thomas Joshua Cooper is one of the truly great landscape photographers of this or any decade. His rigorous methodology: researching locations (usually remote) traveling with his heavy field camera and finally making a single exposure before returning to the darkroom, transforms the act of image capture into a ritual of physical meditation. The resultant prints are exquisite and impossible to reproduce in any other format. Vertiginous blacks, vaporous atomized fields of moving water and details of crystalline luminosity, form images which seem subject to a different order of time. A reflective and profound rootedness in the very earth he travels spills from even the smallest prints slowing time and breath. His work completely transcends his chosen medium through an extraordinarily attenuated sensibility. Like most great art it has to be met head on. Humble and monumental at once these photographs need to be viewed directly.
