The field of iconic landscape photographers is deep. As we look at their images we consistently re-interpret ours, reminding us of our longing to connect to that open space. To stand out among the masses is a tall order, finding nuance and unique identity creating a lasting visual memory. Approaching a harsh visceral landscape and imbuing life into it is something that connects Jim Stoicheff to the earth he photographs. The desert provides the creative duality of hard and soft scapes, of light and shadow, of texture and evolution. Stoicheff’s images are graphic, full of rich contrast, dense blacks and stark whites.

Jim’s method involves mentally deconstructing a subject by stripping away less essential elements or dividing it into parts, at least temporarily, and then examining what remains from different perspectives. His creative process incorporates that, but permits him to work the other direction, making something from the results of that deconstruction and analysis, with the intention that the image reveals something beautiful or unique in the sense of discovery.
