Cody Cobb’s striking photographs communicate the solitude of remote locations, places he seeks to immerse himself in untouched wilderness. The isolation allows him more sensitive observations of the external landscape and his internal experiences within it. Cobb's Spectral series was featured in the June 2023 volume of National Geographic Magazine.

These photographs reveal a hidden luminescence in the wilderness of the American West. From collapsed lava tubes lines with microbial mats to high elevations where lichens thrive, a strange fluorescence occurs when certain minerals and organic materials are subjected to ultraviolet radiation.
This parallel world is briefly unveiled in the darkness of night with long exposures using an ultraviolet emitting light source. The eerie light that is emitted from these once familiar surfaces transmutes the mundane into something otherworldly. - Cody Cobb
