Mitch Dobrowner (b. 1956) is a self-taught photographer whose works capture the beauty of natural landscapes and the drama of turbulent storms, often in the Southwest. Born in Bethpage, NY, Dobrowner began studying photography as a teenager after his father gave him a camera in the hope it would keep him out of trouble. Inspired by the work of Ansel Adams and Minor White, Dobrowner works solely with black-and-white photography and his use of light and form results in rich, intense photographs that convey his belief in the spirituality of the depicted natural environments. His work has brought him many awards and is held in the collections of the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Portland Museum of Art, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, among others.

Dobrowner has made two limited edition books of his photography with 21st Editions: Mitch Dobrowner (2011) with text by Dafydd Wood and The Prophesies of William Blake (2012) with text by John Wood. His work is also featured in Storms (2013), a trade edition book he created while chasing supercell thunderstorms in Tornado Alley in the Western and Midwestern United States.
