Sky series

art & illustration

I love the vibrant, colorful, photographs in the Sky series by New York-based artist Eric Cahan. The photographs, often without any reference to the earth, show a surreal limitless space and were taken at bodies of water in California, Florida, and New York.

To me, the sun is the ultimate source of light, so it only seemed natural to pursue that source — Cahan explains.

Using four different cameras ranging from 6 x 7 film to digital he explores the magical light during a sunrise or a sunset. The magic light reminds me of early flights and makes me want to plan new trips to discover places I have never been before.
