Brandon Eicher is a fine art photographer based in Chicago, Illinois. He specializes in uncommon images of all 50 states – not just those on the coasts.

A self-taught artist, Brandon developed an interest in photography on a yearlong trek to visit all 50 states. As he traveled across the country, he discovered beauty in some of the most remote parts of the country – from the fjords of Alaska to the dunes of New Mexico to the lighthouses of Maine.

Over the last several years, Brandon has returned to many of these locations, not to shoot and collect postcards, but to capture images of America: photos of lone trees overlooking endless fields, of weathered old piers, and even of big cities. Taken together, these images tell a story about the diversity and beauty of the country.
