Double personality, twisted artist, transformist, Aaron lives here and there. He comes to us from San Francisco where he has lived for most of his life. For several months he has traveled searching for his holy grail. It is in the German city of art, Berlin, where he currently resides.
Aaron will soon be a well-known artiste. Already with several books published, he has received critical acclaim in Europe and in the USA for both the quality and style of his work. In his world, the staging of his shots takes a particular importance. Aaron constructs scenery which allows his models to come to life.
Esthetics, refined erotism, fetishism, almost all aspects are present in his photography with a sharp point of focus on good taste. The critics say that Aaron is just a reserved American who doesn’t want to shock. We don’t agree. Aaron is a man of good taste.
On a meeting with Aaron Hawks, you could be quite preturbed. He changes from one person into someone halfway between comic and serious.
Herr Hawks was born from a comic strip, coming out of our subconciousness, his old time style of dress is like a character from the 1930’s, everyone of us can see a personality in his unique style. Herr Hawks, the photographer, directs and controls each scene. It’s true that Herr Hawks is a director, he has already shot 2 short films which are quite surprising in their quality and are entirely filmed in 16mm.
We are a long way from the sterile atmosphere that we are used to seeing in erotic films.
Here everything is fine, the story is mysterious, the world is relentless and transports us as we watch these images like we watch a film. This world is without doubt inspired by the cinema and the multiple references that it can be associated with. It is profoundly out of step, out of step and perfectly created.
So it is a complete artist that we present this week. Aaron welcomed us into his Berlin studio, and for several hours he allowed us to watch him work with one of his models.
We are convinced that Herr Hawks will become more and more well-known and his style and approach will seduce you as it seduces us.
Humoristic, ironic, unconventional, Aaron knows and as you will see in the film dedicated to him, Herr Hawks wowed the crowd of the Kodak Theater of Hollywood boulevard.
