Dave Coon

I received an e-mail from Dave Coon yesterday with a link to his website. It is hard to not make immediate stylistic parallels with the photographers of the New Topographics movement. The stark, detached vision of the American landscape is a theme common to photography, and despite its relative saturation Coon has found something unique in these familiar places.
