International documentary photographer Daryl Hawk will give a special photography presentation and lecture to the Norwalk Camera Club entitled Forever Wild on Monday, Nov. 12, at 7:30 p.m. at the Weston Public Library. The event is open to the general public.
This past July, Mr. Hawk and his 17-year-old son Justin embarked on a road trip on primarily back roads exploring the entire state of Oregon from top to bottom.
The Oregon coast, Columbia Gorge, Mount Hood, Crater Lake National Park, central Oregon and lava lands, as well as the northern California redwood country were all photographed and are part of the presentation. The photo documentary will be featured in the January issue of Shutterbug Magazine.
“Oregon is such a diverse state that it is something of an amalgam of American life and landscapes. Within its boundaries, the state reflects a part of almost every region of the country,” Mr. Hawk said. He added, “It was a dream come true to be shooting side by side with my son for an extended period of time experiencing countless adventures on a daily basis. This was truly a journey of discovery.”
For 25 years, Mr. Hawk has traveled to some of the most remote and isolated places in the world telling stories with his camera. He is also a travel writer and lecturer whose articles and photographs often appear in magazines worldwide.
He has been featured several times on NBC’s Today Show and Fox 5 television. He is a member of the Explorers Club and a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society.
He has published three photography books: Distant Journeys, Quiet Moments and White Pond.
He is the former host and producer of the cablevision television show The Unconventional Traveler, and the owner of Hawk Photography in Wilton, which specializes in wedding, portrait, corporate, and commercial photography.
The Norwalk Camera Club was founded in 1943. The mission of the club is to enhance the enjoyment of photography by providing a forum for both professional and amateur photographers as well as local, regional, and national organizations.
