Cole RiseMoments after a rainstorm during a street festival. People scattered in every direction to avoid getting wet. I ran from cover to run through the puddles. This little guy had the same idea not too long after. Asheville, North Carolina 2006. Cole Rise has spent the better half of his life behind the lens; stalking cows and lying in the grass to capture the landscape. He can't tell you how big the universe is, or why we're really here, but his work sometimes flirts with the idea of knowing.
