Sublime Landscapes by Antony Crook

  • Posted by Neil Simonton on September 12, 2012 in Photography
  • We first heard about New York-based filmmaker and photographer Antony Crook via Thirty Century Man, the film he made of his friend James Bowthorpe cycling through Norway. Soundtracked by Mogwai (he did the cover art for their last LP too), the short clip beautifully shows off Crook's affinity for big, dramatic landscapes and lonely figures passing through them.

    Crook's photography treads similar territory--and is similarly amazing. Quiet and contemplative, these images nicely capture the feeling of smallness you get when in the face of a sublime landscape. 

    On a separate note, here is a fun game: Scroll through the first series of photos on Crook's site and see if you can guess the faces in the portraits. If you get more than half right you win... well, nothing. Yay.
