For the past 30 years, Hawk has traveled alone to some of the most remote and isolated places in the world, telling stories with his camera. He spends weeks at a time documenting and immersing himself in the different cultures and landscapes. He tries to capture the heart and soul of a country with his photographs, depicting the characteristics of the landscapes, as well as the timeless moments and passions of the people.
“I like looking for wild country to be young in where my mind can run free and fast with the constant visual stimulation I experience from dawn to dusk – always seeking and searching for something new and different," he said in a press release.
Hawk is a motivational lecturer and travel writer whose articles and photographs have appeared in magazines and newspapers worldwide.
Founded in 1876, the Appalachian Mountain Club is America’s oldest conservation and recreation organization.
