On the Cover – Jan/Feb 19

“Thinker in Snow” by Des Moines freelance photographer Mike Hiatt. “It was the first big blizzard of the year [in 2015] so instead of staying indoors, I took a walk around downtown,” Hiatt recalls. “I’ve shot ‘Thinker on a Rock’ by Barry Flanagan many times, but I liked the feeling of this lone rabbit, who, like me, wasn’t about to come in from the storm.” Hiatt specializes in black and white environmental, urban and documentary photography. In February, his work will be featured in an exhibit at the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden. Learn more: mfhiattphotography.com; Instagram and Flickr (@mfhiatt).
