Chuck Kimmerle, From the Heart: Land

Kasey Grote 0 450
Location: Jonas 305
Time: 3 pm - 4:30 pm
Chuck Kimmerle's photographic landscape work centers primarily around the intersections of where man and nature meet. He finds that these areas, which now seem to be the norm of our landscape, offer an insight and significance which he cannot find in nature alone.
Kimmerle states, "I still feel an attraction to the plains, prairies, and basins near where I live in Wyoming. Their quietness and peacefulness are therapeutic. I need them to refresh my soul and maintain my sanity. I think such a connection is not only relevant in my work, but vital. It’s what drives me and inspires me."
