Powerfully Dramatic Landscapes by 23-Year-Old Shane Hawk


Whether we are watching or not, the sun rises every day and sets every evening. On a regular basis, 23-year-old photographer Shane Hawk turns his eye towards the sky to document the daily magic that takes place overhead. Based in California, Hawk began photographing with just an iPhone. He has since moved his way to more advanced equipment but, regardless of the camera, he says he “finds comfort behind a lens.”

From strikingly vivid sunsets and misty golden skies to the gray clouds that cover a mountaintop, Hawk certainly has an eye for beautiful places. His spectacular collection is filled with powerfully vibrant colors that seem electric. He relies on light and reflections to capture the intriguing effects which blur the horizon line so that where land stops and sky begins is often unclear. Each one of his calm, secluded scenes conveys vast emotions which remind us of just how small we really are in this world.

To create each masterpiece, Edlen applies acrylic paint directly onto the record’s vinyl. Stark, black-and-white tones enable each singer’s portrait to dramatically pop from its black background, and delicate, dappled brushstrokes reminiscent of pointillism emphasize the surface’s unique contours.
