Kevin Erskine’s story is one of triumph over tragedy. Witnessing his Nebraskan childhood city center destroyed by a super storm is what started his deep routed obsession with chasing and capturing these beautiful monsters. Having only 4 shots a roll on a Linhoff 617 camera and keeping the results pure and unaltered by digital manipulation makes for a breathtaking documentation of Mother Nature. SUPERCELL is a series of photographs documenting the variations of frightening, yet completely hypnotizing, rotating storms of the same name.
"There is no specific physical or mental preperation. The morning forecast results in a target area, usually followed by a 400 mile drive. The only thing I can’t prepare for is the beauty, the power and the feeling of creating art with nature. Around 5 is called the magic hour when the big storms ignite after enough heat. If the cap breaks, the show is on. Get yourself in a good position and with some luck you’ll get a spectacular Supercell." -Kevin Erskine
