The overwhelming pleasure of looking at the sky is the theme of Eric Cahan’s photographic work. The rich gradients of colour found in his photo series Sky are created through the use of multiple resin filters and a bit of luck. Cahan scouts locations across the Americas looking for the perfect sky. He prefers them to be cloudless, although sometimes a cloud makes its way in, and the colours must always be intense.

“This occurs within the first few minutes of a sunrise or the last few of a sunset,” says Cahan. Such as the sunset photographed at Two Mile Hollow, New York, at 7:22pm. “Skies filled with pollution do not work,” says Cahen, “as the haze does not reproduce well.” It gives the New York City native a good reason to escape the city from time to time.
