” I’m a 20 year old Photography student at Manchester Metropolitan in England. Having grown up in Newcastle one of England’s party cities and being in the North East, heavy drinking is a weekly occurrence. Whilst working taking photographs inside nightclubs you are employed to make people look as beautiful as possible. Glossing over the obvious excess which leads people to loose control of their bodies and often their morals. Then going to Manchester for University, another party city and working more it seemed to become more obvious that this non-glamorous, often quite grotesque side of going out is usher to one side, often due to the intoxicated state leaving memories of the night hazy or gone. Therefore I decided to go out and try and capture these moments which de-glamerise excess drinking. ” – Stewart Honeyman

Several focal points define the work of New York-based artist Eric Cahan. Among them: light, specifically the light generated by the sun at sunrise and sunset, science, nature, and the ephemeral quality of memories. These considerations are in play when, equipment in tow, Cahan heads outside at a carefully chosen hour of morning or evening to begin creating one of his flawless, ethereal works of art. Cahan himself made most of the work for his current project, Sky Series, during his extensive travels. Each photograph and sculpture is titled with the time and location of its conception. In this way, Cahan catalogues his visual journal. “ 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’s viewers see in his work his unique interpretation of a specific time and place.
