ROB STONE

Rob Stone’s award-winning black and white photography explores the drama and beauty of Northern California landscapes. With exquisite technique, Stone chronicles the dynamic relationship between nature and human settlement. His quietly arresting portraits of trees, land, and water showcase the dramatic transformation of the region’s modern ecology, as embodied in often deceptively tranquil rural and suburban scenes. These images are local yet universal, showing the many ways that nature resists and forgives the Promethean human project. Stone’s work is exhibited and acclaimed throughout Northern California, where it has helped support natural restoration projects. His photographs are held in private and corporate collections, and in the permanent collection of Sacramento’s Crocker Art Museum.

CLOSE TO HOME

Our job is to record, each in his own way, this world of light and shadow and time that will never come again exactly as it is today.
