Take Refuge is a series of large-scale photos by Kevin Cooley that depict the human struggle against nature's harsher moments. The natural world may exhibit great beauty, but it is never wise to forget how unforgiving it can also be. "This body of work was created in disparate locations including the Arctic territory of Spitsbergen and the American West as well in more ordinary places such as New York City and Los Angeles. Referencing the Romantic Movement in art and literature, the work attests to both the fear and longing nature inspires."
