Photographer Garret Suhrie

I am your standard wanderer and photographer, guess you could say Los Angeles based though often living on the road in my Tacoma, or a tent in the backcountry.  A lifetime ago, I went to school for painting and art history, which were a huge influence on my photography.  Though the aerial you chose doesn't reflect it, I focus mainly on long exposures and painting with light; I just traded in my paintbrush for a flashlight.

I've been an insomniac long as I can remember, and the night time is often such a strange and surreal stage, it gives a peculiar feeling which I try to fuse into my work. For myself at least, there's nothing better than the middle of nowhere in the middle of the night.  I try to capture that strange and share a view of the world not so often seen.  I've been featured in dozens of notable publications and galleries around the world, most recently a finalist in the Windland Rice Smith competition and exhibited in the Smithsonian.
