Holger Droste - Somewhere in the country
I don't know much about Holger Droste except that he seems to be German and that maybe he's one of the best photographer I posted on this blog. Here a series about the country (except the first and the last ones that are from Somewhere in the Soul but I find they fit better with this series) that is no less than breathtaking. Each could illustrate a dramatic blues trad. although it is not specifically from USA. How these pictures can reach such a metaphysical deepness is a mystery for me. His site here. More from him later. Hope he's got the recognition he deserves. And not clicking on the pictures to see them full size would be a mistake.
