About Erik

"The mission of photography is to explain man to man and each to himself."

--Edward Steichen

Photography is a way I organize the chaos of the world around me and share what I find beautiful and ugly in it. I love the variety of people I meet - presidents, farmers, musicians, doctors... As Edward Steitchen would suggest, through understanding them I am able to better understand myself.

I hope that the people who view my work are equally well served.

When I'm not shooting, I'm most likely on our farm, growing food for my family and 40 of our closest neigbors. Check Plough & Stars Project for more.

Although proudly born and raised in Asheville, NC I am presently based in Boston, MA.
