Chuck Kimmerle photographs in and around the geographic center of the North American continent, in the northern plains of eastern North Dakota and northwest Minnesota. Chuck used to be a photojournalist and now concentrates on his fine art work, specializing in non-natural landscapes shaped, as he says, "both by nature and the farmer's plow."
His work has a quiet beauty to it and his website is well worth a visit when you're in a contemplative or reflective mood.
Featured Comment by Mike Hess: "Having met Chuck before when I was a student at the University that he photographed for and having been exposed to his work, everything that has been written here by Mike is spot on. His style is unique and effective. It would seem that photographers that spend time in eastern 'Nodak' and western Minnesota develop an affection for rural 'scapes. Another great photog worth looking at is the late Jerry Olson. His work has been an influence on me—every time I look at it, I want to go out and find the magical places that he creates."
