Eric Moran

Eric Moran is a photographer from Northeastern Connecticut, who currently lives in Brooklyn. He attended the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University, where he graduated in 2012 with a BFA in Photography and minor in Psychology. Much of his work employs the Northeastern landscape as a backdrop to explore psychological phenomena, perception, and the individual. Today we share with you his series Shul.

“Emptiness can be compared to the impression of something that used to be there…formed by the indentations, hollows, marks, and scars left by the turbulence of selfish craving.”

– Rebecca Solnit, A Field Guide to Getting Lost.

Shul explores spaces altered by a history of presence and withdrawal; human intervention evidenced in the landscape. Markings remain as impressions of longing, after the individual has gone. In the photographs, this absence is a presence described and informed by the impermanence of light, and markings within a domestic space.
