Black And White Landscape Images by Drew Nikonowicz

Drew Nikonowicz is an artist currently seeking his BFA in Photography at the University of Missouri in Columbia. In This World and Others Like It, Nikonowicz considers the opportunity of new frontiers using analog photography and simulated, computer-generated imagery. Nikonowicz’s work explores the majestic landscape as mediated through technology, matching Albert Bierstadt’s landscape paintings of the American Westward Expansion. Bierstadt made claims of representational integrity, yet his ornamented paintings were visions of an ideal landscape. Furthermore, Nikonowicz’s pictures mimic reality, therefore letting the viewer experience a place they know cannot exist, but hoping that it did somewhere, maybe in another world.
