10 Powerful Black and White Photographs of the American Landscape

Ron Gessel USA 6

Have you ever went on a road trip across the United States? The adventure will take you through some incredible city skylines and serene landscapes alike. Photographer and art director Ron Gessel guides us on a stunning visual journey through the continental U.S, capturing its depth and beauty all in simple black and white! But don’t let the monotone colors fool you: this gallery contains some pretty awe-inspiring shots enhanced by very dramatic yet natural occurrences like shadows and fog.

Based out of Amsterdam, Gessel said he sees himself as a photography purist:

I try to travel as much as I can. During my travels I am touched and fascinated by the country, the country side and its inhabitants. I see myself as a street photographer, in heart and soul. As I want to capture real life, my photos are not staged and happen spontaneously.”
