The landscape photographs of Colorado artist Bo Cheatham elevate the ordinary to the extraordinary. He unequivocally states that he wants every one of his photographs to be thought-provoking, eliciting strong emotional responses from his viewers. To do so, Cheatham focuses on clarity and capturing the moment. He frames his shots with an eye for the unexpected or for the elegance of a line, looking for a way to isolate and capture what he believes is the simplicity of nature, highlighted by the weight of a significant moment. He also practices minimal post-production work and edits in-camera as much as possible, in order to clearly and honestly convey what was before his eyes when he took the shot.
An avid outdoorsman and flight paramedic, Cheatham has spent much time in Nature and considers her an unforgiving teacher. That said, the lessons he's learned in the wild have elevated and matured not only himself, but his work. He hopes his landscapes will provide his viewers with "a contemplative moment and visual relief from a chaotic world."
