Eric Joyce (b. 1989) grew up in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. He graduated with a BA in photography and philosophy from Marlboro College in 2012. He is interested in how people interact with their environments, and how the evidence of these interactions expresses the struggle of asserting our individual autonomy. His photographs have been exhibited in multiple group and solo shows in Vermont and New York. Today we share Eric’s series titled Kingdom of Dirt.
Kingdom of Dirt
While living at his mother’s house after graduating from college, Eric returned to a project he had started while in school that attempted to document Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. When he returned home he worked at a restaurant a half an hour drive down a road lined with crosses marking fatal car accidents and travelled by loosely regulated logging trucks from his mother’s house. Although some of these photos predate this experience, they are assembled to reflect on this time in his life and living in a rural area.
