The Great Highway Gallery is pleased to announce Natural Obscurity photographic works by Gerald Hawk. On view from January 21st – Febuary 27th. The exhibition will feature abstract photography. The opening reception will be held on January 23rd from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.
My work is about capturing the mystical significance of nature. Being in nature inspires me to capture the wonder I have always felt there. My photographs attempt to reproduce this otherworldly experience. In this exhibition, I will be presenting abstract photographs that were shot with an iPhone. The iPhone, to me, is a toy camera – compact, unassuming, fun, and to some extent utilitarian. I have worked extensively with toy cameras, including the Diana and the Lomo. The iPhone has the same qualities as these novelty cameras, but allows me to be completely in the moment, allowing scenery to completely captivate me as it unfolds and evolves.
