This event has ended.

Kevin Erskine is a farmer from Nebraska, who does not wish to label himself a storm chaser. It is the pursuit of beauty, rather than thrill that drives Kevin Erskine into the eye of the storm. The fascination for photographing supercells has had him follow, admire and respect them, since the age of 12.

It was in 1968 when nature’s force struck his hometown, Hoskins, Nebraska with an EF 4 Tornado, that stung Kevin, with a fascination.

Today, and years later, Erskine’s quest has led him to Milk Gallery. With a large format camera, his sensitive interpretations of forceful Mother Nature have turned him into an artist. He is about to be praised with his new book and show at Milk Gallery, labeled “Supercell.”

Erskine’s work has been compared to J.W Turner’s Snow Storm – Steam Boat off a Harbour’s Mouth (1842). While painting this piece, Turner was not sure he would survive. One can see what brought about this comparison. Both artists, two centuries apart, seek the heart of the storm to make a dangerously beautiful moment last forever.

Note that Kevin Erskine is an alter ego of Erik Hijweege.
