Eric Cahan Reverently Captures Skies Flying.

Two Mile Hallow, NY
Sunset 7:22pm

Sometimes there are images that speak volumes despite their complexity of form, or even of concept. It seems photographer Eric Cahan gets around — and his minimal photographs of the sky, which document sunsets on the East Coast, West Coast, and locations in-between, present a spectrum of natural variety that defies expectation. Surely everyone knows that sunsets can be breath-taking, but when isolated sunsets are viewed with an entire collection of same-but-different relatives, they daintily scratch an itch you may have never noticed before.
