Camille Seaman started photographing the sky in a continued effort to, in her words, “illustrate the interconnection of all life on Earth.” She started searching for supercells, the storms made famous for their capacity to produce tornadoes. In the process, she has captured a mesmerizing palette of the sky in these stunning images. The photos feel more like portraits than mere landscapes, each scene balancing a mood in between light and dark, solid and atmospheric, ethereal and permanent. Her “Big Cloud” series spans four storm seasons, from May 2008 through June 2012, and a selection is seen on Picture This.
