Clifford Ross's Hurricane series captures tumultuous ocean waves shot by the artist in the water while tethered to an assistant on land. Ross says, "Why waves and hurricanes? They're bigger than me. Nature is bigger than me…Ultimately I realized that I was reflecting on memories from my childhood, being slammed by the waves off Long Island when I was body surfing. To some extent, there's a notion that when you take a picture, you have codified and controlled an event. So photographing the sea during a storm echoes certain childhood experiences from a safer perspective, from a position of relative control."

There are very few artists who are able to capture landscapes with the same elegance, precision, and sense of abandonment that is present in all of Clifford Ross's work. A virtuoso not only with his camera, but also with invention and technology, Ross's works speak to anyone interested in new media and the way that it can be utilized to create astounding reproductions of untamable nature.

Ross began his career as a painter and sculptor after graduating from Yale in 1974. In 1995, he turned his attention toward photography and other media. Frustrated by the lack of detail available with existing cameras, Clifford Ross invented and patented the "R1" camera in 2002 and made some of the highest resolution large-scale landscape photographs in the world.

His current work includes a stained glass wall for the new federal courthouse in Austin, Texas and he recently completed Harmonium Mountain, an animated, computer-generated landscape video, with an original score by Philip Glass. In numerous public collections, his work can be seen in the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, among others. His book of photographs, Wave Music (Aperture 2005), includes an essay by philosopher Arthur Danto and an interview by novelist A.M. Homes. Read Less
