Join landscape photographer David Skernick as he travels the remote back roads of Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, and Nevada—a region so rich in natural beauty that much of it has been preserved by the national park system. Panoramic images place the viewer directly into landscapes containing ranches, wolves, wild horses, and stunning geological formations. Interwoven with this rugged scenery are glimpses of civilization—working grain elevators, old hotels, and the occasional abandoned gas station. Skernick, who leads photography workshops nationwide, lets us in on his strategies with an appendix listing exposure, equipment, and panorama statistics for each image—enough to satisfy even the most technology-minded photographer.

Raised in Cleveland, Ohio, David Skernick received a bachelor’s degree in photography in 1977 and moved to California soon after. In 1981 he founded PHOTO24 to bring together his generation of fine art photographers to sell nature photographs to corporations and institutions, arguing that everyone is better off with a little more nature. David’s goal in life is to drive and photograph every road in the United States. Recent shows include the LA Photo Show and Photo LA 2015 and 2016, and Photo Independent 2015. His book Lost on Gray Roads was released along with a showing at the ArtLA gallery in Bergamot Station in Los Angeles in 2013.
