I was doing some research online when some photos caught my eye. They were taken by a photographer named Roman Loranc. He immigrated to the US from Poland & settled in the California Central Valley in the 1980s. He prefers black and white film & uses a 4 x 5 field camera. He mainly does landscape photography.
He has spent twenty years photographing the Cosumnes River Preserve. Every winter the river floods the 700+ acre Preserve's grasslands, fields and forests. Seasonal flooding creates wetlands and a rare river valley oak forest. Loranc tries to capture the mystery and beauty of the winter floods. He photographs other areas and things as well. He is particularly interested in photographing places of prayer in his native Poland and Lithuania. To learn more about Roman Loranc visit his website here.
