Photographs by Erik Eskedal: November & December 2016 Displaying Artist


Erik Eskedal endeavors to share the uniquely happy way that he views life.
He is an eternal optimist who enjoys life – the small beauties, the randomnesses, the depths, and the simplicities, among other things. His goal is to share his positive perspective as much as possible.

According to Erik, “Many technical aspects of camera operation still elude me, as my conscious retention seems restricted by a broad desire to enjoy the present. I see the moment, capture it in its raw beauty, and move on. There is no setup or recreation of a moment just to get it right. I am a photographer of reality, within each raw moment.”  The results are stunning, as you can see by this exhibition.

Erik’s artistic roots are in drawing – mainly cars and inanimate subjects -- as his mother is an artist. He loves driving, traveling, cars, and the road in general!
Erik does not consider himself a typical photographer, and he strives to offer a refreshing perspective that many photographers may overlook.

His work will be on display throught the end of the year.
