I live and work in Brooklyn. My day job keeps me in film and chemicals, but photography keeps me in love with this world.
From James and Karla Murry, authors of the excellent Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York: “Few photographer’s work connect with us like Shawn Hoke’s work does. It just looks and feels “right” to us. The shots are that perfect combination of technical prowess and effortlessly looking results, un-choked by fussiness and ready to echo as documents for eternity… It’s as if Shawn has managed to compile a visual mission statement for what we do everyday. And he shoots primarily film. Still.”
I use these cameras:
35mm – Olympus OM-1 with Zuiko 50mm f1.8 MF lens
Medium Format – Hasselblad 501C with Zeiss Planar 80mm f2.8 lens
Large Format – 8×10 Eastman View Camera No. 2D with Schneider 210mm f5.6 and 300mm f5.6 lenses
Digital – Nikon D700 camera, Nikkor 50mm f1.4 lens, Nikkor 85mm f1.4 lens
Work featured in:
