Sunrise, sunset – Eric Cahan

1 comment

Goodbye April showers. This photographic project by New York-based artist Eric Cahan – entitled Sky Series – is luminous, vibrant, and completely inspiring, showing the awe that mother nature can and always will provoke in man.

Point Dume, Malibu CA – Sunrise 5:46am

The series documents vivid sunrises and sunsets from various locations, and features an almost supernatural palette of jewel colours. The works show Cahan’s preoccupation with light – especially when at its weakest and most magical moments of the day.

The works are inherently romantic and have a nostalgic quality to them, provoking in us all a sense of daydream-like reminiscence about those perfect sunrises and sunsets we’ve all witnessed, if only momentarily. His works document a specific time and location, and yet they’re timeless and placeless because of their ephemeral nature.

The Dunes, Amagansette, NY – Sunset 6:47pm

Sea Cliff, San Francisco, CA – Sunrise 6:57am

Dune Road, Southampton, NY – Sunset 7:33pm

Sag Harbor, NY – Sunset 7:33pm

Bridgehampton, NY – Sunset 7:48pm

‘During my travels, I discover what I want to document. My works are titled to remind me of the experience, both visually and spiritually,’ Cahan explains. ‘My mission is to capture light. Light is the true subject of this series: its constant mystery, the way it shifts and colors everything around it in nature.’ Beautifully put.
