Our culture is addicted to predicting the weather; hourly forecasts, apps, warnings, and watches create an illusion that the forces of nature are under our control. Reveling in the fact that we are guests on the earth, Camille Seaman—who documented the beauty of icebergs in Melting Away—stands in front of tornados, at the edges of lightning storms, and in pelting hail under pitch-black skies to photograph supercells and mammatus clouds in their sublime and often terrifying splendor. Seaman's 85 awe-inspiring images here are a potent reminder that there is no art more dramatic, in scale or emotion, than that created by nature.
