With a sharp simplicity that strips away excess to reveal a purity of intent, Haw-lin Services’ images burn themselves to memory. The duo behind the moniker, Nathan Cowen and Jacob Klein, work across photography, art direction, graphic design, and creative research – with a focus on fashion, architecture, art, product and interior design.
Texture and detailing take centre stage in their still life photography – the nylon mesh of a sneaker, the finely lined skin on the back of a hand – to reveal sensual beauty in the oft- ignored. The duo skillfully use sculptural shapes and pops of colour, proving that in the hands of Haw-lin Services, anything can become a contemporary cultural artefact.
