Eric’s Gallery

It is the desire to escape the familiar that sends me out on the road seeking fresh places to explore and capture in photographs.

Over the years I have been drawn repeatedly to the Mallee country because of its unique sense of place.

I’m attracted by the big skies and open country, both the cleared land and the vast, remaining expanses of natural Mallee scrub. The small towns, many of which are all but abandoned, are great and often poignant subjects to photograph.

In using the camera to document any locale, my aim is to capture not only a sense of place but also my own emotional response to that place.

The photographs in this gallery were exhibited at Atkins Photo Lab Gallery, Adelaide during October 2016.

This exhibition is the first of a number planned, in effect a ‘work in progress’. It required a lot of time reviewing old negatives and digital files, a satisfying and enjoyable process.

I look forward to many more visits to the Mallee country
