The photographer John Wimberley makes fabulous black and white pictures of nature, landscapes and figurative photos.
John Wimberley’s photographs are populated by an abundance of pictorial elements: clouds, rocks, ravens, stones, mists, trees, grains of sand, feet; and it’s extraordinary how he repeatedly gets these elements to work in his photographs. Sand grains line up perfectly to mirror ripples of light in the clouds above. A cloud in one corner of a photograph echoes the form of a tree branch in the corner opposite. Clouds in another photograph compliantly rise from the rooftop vent of a shepherd’s wagon. And, where it would be rare for a raven to be seen sitting on a rock, there are two ravens in that photograph.
