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 Library.
The event is open to the public.
In July, 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 will all be highlighted.
Hawk's 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," 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 the past 25 years, 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 also been featured several times on NBC's Today Show and Fox 5 television and has
published three photography books.
He is the owner of Hawk Photography in Wilton, which specializes in wedding, portrait, corporate and commercial photography.
