Photography

Cahan, Eric (1970)

Eric Cahan was inspired to begin his Sky Series after seeing James Turrell’s works. Also inspired by Impressionism and Color Theory - the science of how colors, tones, and hues combine to create varied results - the American photographer vertically or horizontally depicts skies and oceans, focusing on light: ‘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.’ By doing so, Eric Cahan proposes a saturated luminous, colorful and abstract observation of nature, in a meditative manner: ‘My work is meant to capture a moment in nature, asking and empowering the viewer to be fully present, involved, and uplifted. I want the viewer to be drawn in, and be completely absorbed by, rather than separate from, that fleeting moment in time.’
