Mitch DOBROWNER (1956-) grew up on Long Island (Bethpage), NY – He felt lost in his late teens. Worried about his future direction in life, his father gave him an old Argus rangefinder to fool around with. Little did he realize what an important gesture that would turn out to be for him.
After doing some research and seeing the images of Minor WHITE and Ansel ADAMS he quickly became addicted to photography.
To make a long story short, he left home at 21, quitting his job, leaving friends and family to see the American Southwest for himself.
For nearly 30 years, Mitch DOBROWNER worked on his own, without showing it.
In early 2005, inspired by his wife, children and friends – he decided it was about time to bring it to the world. Today he is on a passionate mission to create images that help evoke how he sees our wonderful planet.
‘I feel that I owe much to the great photographers of the past, especially Ansel Adams, for their dedication to the craft and for inspiring me in my late teens. Though I have never met them, their inspiration helped me determine the course my life would take’.
