Aaron Glasson (Aka Rah Akaishi) is from Aotearoa, New Zealand but has traveled extensively for the past decade documenting, painting, drawing, and exploring our marvelous planet.
"The Harbor Master in the painting only appears for about five seconds, for no apparent reason, smoking a pipe carrying a cereal box and milk. It made me laugh and I think he is a pretty good representation of salty sea dog, and the humor of the film. Rather than the milk and cereal mine carries the dead shark, and Brody's house. If you look really close you can see the remains of an ancient shark buried under his house. This was reference to the fact that although we don't often acknowledge it, sharks have been on earth a lot longer than us, playing their critical part in the ecosystem.
In the Harbor Master's forehead is the first scene of the film when Jaws gets his first victim. In the background is the final scene when the boat sinks. There are a lot of other things going on in between it could be fun to watch the film, then look at the painting." - Aaron Glasson
