Samuel Burns is master of creating moody, minimalist landscapes. Using a large format camera, he chooses perfectly baren areas and shoots them using a long-exposure process to give them a more blurry, dream-like feel. Beginning with setting up his old-fashioned camera on a tripod, adjusting the dials, and triggering the shutter, the entire process may take up to eight hours. The results are well worth the wait. Each shot is achingly lonely and pristine.
