Art often shows the marvellous in the common place, and this is what Eric strives to do with his photography, offering the viewer insight into something new, yet undeniably familiar.
Eric’s work consistently utilizes careful compositions and frequently takes advantage of advanced camera and post production processes to create incredibly detailed, nuanced images. His primary subjects are the Nude and architecture, in infrared, traditional black and white or colour. He has also explored working with flowers and close-up abstracts in colour.
Eric’s work has always been dependent on meticulous technique; he is a ritualistic photographer who find process both comforting and integral to his work. For Eric, photography is not something that just happens, it is something that must be fostered and nurtured, through dedicated attention and passionate practice.
Eric has worked with a wide variety of camera formats, with both film and digital. Since 2005, he has used digital single-lens reflex cameras, working with both visible and infrared light. Eric frequently utilizes multi-image techniques (stitching, stacking, blending) to realize his images,
Eric’s film photography (1986-2005) was done with a variety of cameras formats from 35mm to 12”x20” view cameras. Select vintage darkroom prints are available upon request.
