I saw Nick Brandt's exhibit 'On This Earth, a Shadow Falls' at the Fotografiska Museet in Stockholm, Sweden, beginning of last year.
It was a fantastic show, and I admire his work greatly. He uses focal lengths closer to normal often, which means he had to get physically close a lot of the time. Very impressive.

This new work looks very interesting, and ponders lots of questions. The pictures are so stark and powerful. Very moving.
