Erica Martin is a fine art photographer and native of Los Angeles, California.  She studied photography at Hampshire College, and then at the International Center for Photography in New York, where she worked with film and darkroom printing.  Martin studied digital and medium format photography at the Los Angeles Center for Photography, where she received her Fine Art Certificate in 2014.

 

Martin photographs people in their surroundings, their rituals and the manifestations of their interior lives.  Her work concerns recurring themes of identity, transformation, and the paradox of human existence captured at a moment in time.  Her photographs show the fraying edges of polite society, and the vernacular secrets that most people pass by.  In addition, Martin has created series of portrait works, often of alternative communities, exploring how her subjects navigate the world and find their tribe.  In Martin’s portrait projects, her relationship to her subjects is the focus point, and the images reflect her presence behind the camera.

 

Erica Martin’s work has been featured on Lenscratch, Lensculture, and PDN Magazine, and has been shown at galleries and exhibitions in Los Angeles, New York, Paris and Milan.
