From Arizona to Maine and Canada to Iceland, photographer Jack Fusco captures the majesty of the night sky as it rests above rivers, fields, mountains and the sea. Whether hiking to the tops of canyons for the best framing, braving single-digit temperatures to wait for the perfect position of heavenly bodies or racing across islands to capture brilliant explosions of Northern lights, Fusco brings his artistic sensibilities, master planning and technological expertise together to create awe-inspiring images.
About the Author
Jack Fusco's photography started as a way to purely document travels throughout the United States and Europe, but it has become a main form of creative expression. Too often we pass by natural beauty or fail to appreciate the things we are surrounded by every day.
Through his photography, he hopes to preserve what has been forgotten and renew that which we have grown accustomed to. Recently, his work has focused on the landscape-astrophotography field. This style of photography takes many notes from both astronomy and traditional landscape photography and then combines the two. Hours are spent planning shots out days, weeks and sometimes even months in advance to make sure all of the elements align properly. Being able to capture the sense of wonder and vastness that we can feel while staring out in a star filled sky is a feeling unmatched.
Jack has won several awards for his photography, including:
