Andrew Borowiec

Probably America's most "undervalued" landscape photographer, I first became aware of Andrew Borowiec with his incredible Along The Ohio- an absolutely brilliant book (with excellent reproductions) that explores the backyards and small towns of that area in the post industrial America of the '80s and '90s. His landscapes, although bristling with all the tell tale signs and details of its inhabitants, are largely devoid of its occupants, lending an almost otherworldly eeriness to their everyday surroundings.

So it's with great anticipation that I read he is currently working on another long term project focusing on Heartland America- and goddang if his color don't look as promising as his B&W!

Thanks for your kind words! You might be interested to know that I have a new book due out this fall, Cleveland: The Flats, the Mill, and the Hills. Also, you can read more about my New Heartland project here:

My web site should be up later this summer, I hope...

Finally, the photo of the pool was made from almost the same location as the image on page 117 in Along the Ohio.
