I enjoy exploring the landscape and it's components. I find the variations in light, form, texture, and color that the elements of a landscape offer fascinating, with endless possibilities to study and observe.
Jon Olsen captures the abstract beauty found in nature. By seeking out specific weather conditions and using a slow shutter speed, he achieves a softness to his photographs that can make viewers wonder whether they are looking at a print, watercolor, or photograph. He does all of his effects with his camera rather than manipulating his photographs digitally. Unlike other photographers, he prints his photographs on watercolor paper, which lends a unique texture to his pictures
In Silo, Olsen highlights the simple geometry of farm buildings. From the cylindrical silo to the rectangular barns, he achieves an easy balance between the vertical and horizontal. He also contrasts the measured order of the lines in the field with the soft chaos of the clouds.
