Storms Launch Party with Photographer Mitch Dobrowner
The launch party and book signing for Mitch Dobrowner’s photobook Storms (Aperture, 2013), a collection of awe-inspiring images taken throughout the American West, took place at Aperture Gallery on October 3. Since 2009, Dobrowner has been chasing storms with professional storm chaser Roger Hill and capturing nature’s monsoons, tornadoes, and massive thunderstorms on camera. The photobook is presented in a large-format edition and designed by Vince Frost, with an introduction by novelist and poet Gretel Ehrlich.
The launch was attended by special guest Raphael Miranda, NBC 4 New York weekend meteorologist and weather producer, and Dark & Stormy and Cyclone cocktails were enjoyed throughout the evening. In keeping with the tempest theme, the innovative Weather Live app was also on display and available for trial. The first thirty-five people to buy a copy of Storms that evening received a free download of the app.
