Erica 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 condensed in a moment.
Erica's work explores the inner lives of her subjects, and how they manifest who they are or would like to be. She is interested in themes of identity, of growing up, of putting on or casting off masks. She uses intimate portraits, along with prosaic places and things, to layer time, creating images that are mysterious yet immediate.
In addition to her photography work, Erica is a silversmith. She lives with her two children, partner, and three dogs in her home town of Hollywood, California.
