Erin is a self-taught fine art photographer. During a vacation to Northern California as a teenager, she found herself fascinated by her ability to capture her surroundings. She fell in love with photography as a medium and has since learned how to operate cameras and edit photos. She is gradually developing her specialty in nature, landscape, conceptual and self-portrait photos.
A number of Erin’s photographs feature her image or body parts. She says that she uses her own image to convey the conceptual and personal side of the story. According to Erin, including herself in the photo allows her to have better control of the output and seeing the photos come to life.
Sheri Heller is a psychotherapist by profession who began taking photos as a teenager wanting to capture the beauty of her surroundings when she travelled. She credits her father’s artistry as well as her own interest in the Great Masters for giving her an affinity for the visual. Sheri says that traveling to new lands and being exposed to new cultures was a refuge for her from difficult circumstances. Photographing her travels allowed her to memorialize her experiences that sustained her, much like an author would jot down the details of important events. For Sheri, this ritual of eternalizing moments through photography is an ongoing process in her life.
She kindly agreed to answer some questions for Creativation Space below:
