Cody Cobb, a US-based photographer, presented a phenomenal series named Dark Side. In this series, Cobb utilises silhouettes to develop a mysterious-like feel to the landscapes — bringing in a feel of isolation and distance.
Writing about the series Cobb stated: “This light only reveals more darkness, an illumination of a strange land that no longer resembles the familiar surfaces of the American West. Undulations of Earth ripple and radiate towards the horizon like a solid sea. Silhouettes of behemoths suspended in geologic time emerge and strange symmetries are revealed in the gentle falloff of red and blue light. Much like the displacement of the visible spectrum as celestial objects move away or towards the observer, these images invoke a similar sense of cosmological contraction and expansion. This relative push and pull disorients the observer’s own perspective and place, allowing the cosmos to stare back.”
