distant showers 
will come too late 
to save this tree... 

in Manzanar, 
even rainbows

Chuck Kimmerle
Issue 15, September 2022

is a U.S. based, fine art, landscape photographer who prefers to work in the reticent and quiet areas located in-between the popular, overcrowded, and over-photographed destinations of grand beauty.

While his style is rooted within the foundations of traditional landscape photography, his observations and interactions are both contemporary and introspective.
