Eric is a serious amateur photographer who started snapping pictures some sixty years ago. He has taken workshops with Minor White, Paul Caponigro, Karin Rosenthal and Fran Forman. He retired from his day job after 35 years as a professor of math and computer science at Suffolk University in Boston in 2004. He has photographed with film cameras in 127, 35mm, 6×6, 6×7, 4×5″ and 8×10″ sizes. In 2004 he went over to the “digital dark side” using cameras from APC to FF35mm. He has had over a dozen solo exhibits and numerous group shows. His photos have been published in Aperture (U.S.A.), Camera (Switzerland), Creative Camera (U.K.), Venture (U.S.A.), and Black and White Magazine (U.S.A.). In 2016 he published his first book of photographs, Capture by Light: Black and White Photographs ~ Fifty Years, with support from the LensWork Publication Skills Grant from the Luminous Endowment for Photographers, for which he is very grateful.
