Sky Plumage

Jonathan Curiel

It's winds that help form the Northern Lights — those otherworldly skies that swirl with greens, reds, blues, and purples — and it's winds that help form another skyward phenomena: supercells. These cloud formations, which are common to the American Midwest, convulse with so much force that they can spawn hail the size of boxers' gloves, along with deadly tornadoes. Supercells also produce an incredible plumage that can stretch horizontally for miles, or upward and outward in a (depending on your view) beautiful or grotesque manner. Bay Area photographer Camille Seaman has been chasing these supercells since 2008, part of a body of work that's focused on icebergs and other natural wonders. A new exhibition of Seaman's supercell images at Corden/Potts Gallery, "The Big Cloud — Lovely Monster," puts the viewer practically in the middle of these gargantuan spectacles. From Seaman's camera, they have a luminosity that turns them, literally, into high art.
