Shawn Sachs speaks of photography as an active process. “There’s a work ethic to it I enjoy. Waking up early, exploring, being present, adjusting angles and shutter speed… It’s a game of seek and find, having no idea where it will happen and knowing it’s often not where you’d expect.”
Whether presenting the obscure or the obvious, Shawn applies a photojournalist’s eye to landscapes and human interactions. Nature’s elements - sunlight, weather, and shadow - give texture and dimension to scenes that evoke serenity.
Photography is a meditative exercise that serves as a counterbalance to Shawn’s varied interests. He is the CEO of a communications firm and an avid traveler with a passion for preservation, service, and storytelling. He was raised on Long Island and resides in New York City with frequent returns to Sag Harbor, where he also has a home.
