PINK MOON is a tribute to both the song of the same title by Nick Drake and to the MAGIC HOUR.

This is the time of day either right after sunrise or before sunset. Also referred to as the GOLDEN HOUR, it is when the light outside has just the right hue of yellow and red.


Beside from being Hochbaum's favorite times of the day, these are also the times when he would most likely be shooting with Carly, his niece who is pictured in this series.

David and Carly have been working on a photo project together for over 10 years. This image is from their year 9 shoot.


The song" PINK MOON" by Nick Drake is one of those tunes that has been floating around the back of David's mind for many years.

Music is very often a catalyst for inspiration  in Hochbaum's work. One will often find lyrics or song titles scrawled onto the surfaces of his pieces and he often create tribute works.


Hochbaum recalls  :..when I created this hand colored print I looked at it and the song popped into my head. I decided it would not only be a celebration of the moon and it's ability to manipulate peoples minds and bodies, but also a nod to the song that comes to mind when I spy a pinkish crescent moon in the sky.".


Hochbaum created 5 different study prints, all unique and giving the moon multiple characters as it often has. They are PINK, BLUE, STRATA,PHANTOM, and DUSK


This version is DUSK


"DUSK" edit is a hand colored pigment print from a scanned 120 film negative.

The digital print is on 300 gsm 100% cotton matt textured paper by Hahnemuhle.

It is hand-colored with acrylic washes.

It is mounted on a panel of MDF board.


The print is sized with a thin layer of PVA and then coated with a beeswax/dammar crystal/carnauba wax encaustic of the artist's own homemade recipe.

This eliminates the need for glass, giving protection and texture to the work.
