About Chuck Kimmerle

Despite having been a photographer for more than 25 years - first as a photojournalist, then as a university photographer - I didn’t discover my connection with the visual landscape until eight years ago. Since then, that connection has become a passion, and that passion has become my life.

Landscape photography is, for me, an art of exploration. It not only allows (commands) me to examine, in detail, my surroundings, but also forces me to consider why I am deeply drawn to the balanced and reticent scenes which I favor.

With my work, I am not at all concerned with replicating, duplicating, the scenes which laid on the other side of the camera. The literal reality. Rather, it is my intention to present a new reality, my reality. A reality based not only on what I have witnessed, but what I have felt.
