  • Biography

    Friend of the mountains and the snow.
    "Photography has fascinated me since I was a boy and watched my father taking photographs and printing in his darkroom - a darkroom we dug out under the house.
    I have a diverse style and portfolio that covers social documentary, landscape and fine art. I specialise in classic toned black & white fine art images. Contemporary fine art black and white prints have led to me being the Central Otago winner of the biennial National Arts Gold Awards in 2013 and 2015. In 1999 I completed an Advanced Diploma in Photography at Massey University of Wellington and in 2007 was awarded an FPSNZ, Fellow of the Photographic Society of New Zealand."
    For the last 40 years Eric has worked as an Outdoor Education teacher at Dunstan High School in Alexandra and currently volunteers for SARS. "My office has been the valleys of the Matukituki in Mt Aspiring National Park as well as the snow and mountains of the Snowfarm on the Pisa Range."

    THE COLOUR OF ANXIETY - 28th March - 24th April
    Waking up on the 1st of January 2020 and seeing the eery glowing sky and
    smoke from the Australian bushfires - I immediately thought “Welcome to our
    future”. To me it was a dystopian future, an in your face reminder that climate
    change affects us all.
    In dealing with this as a photographic project I wanted to convey a warning
    but I also wanted to convey the extraordinary beauty of our land and what we
    risk losing. In a sense the exhibition has become prophetic - as more and
    more places shut down in the face of COVID 19 our land will indeed become
    devoid of people circulating in society.
    My methodology involves visual storytelling, honesty and I hope to give
    viewers an image they can connect with, be that graphic and stark images of
    a future where the beauty rest behind a smoky tone or traditional beautiful
    black and white landscapes.
    This exhibition is printed as a series of framed pigment ink archival
    photographic images with a historic processes wet plate collodion orange
    smoky tint - a reference to the bushfires. It is contrasted with the classical
    timeless quality of two black and white images of how it was and how we
    want things to remain.
