Photographs taken in Yuunan (China). Eric shoots film, lots of 120 rolls, and you can feel in the pictures the shooting speed… the photographer press the shutter before people notice he’s there.
The spreads are very interesting. Very often you think it’s only one picture, but it’s always 2 pictures living together. Playing a part in the speed, too.
Eric compares his photographs without people to negative, and with people to positive. Love this concept.
See the short movie showing Eric taking photographs
ERIC, LOOK AT THIS PEOPLE
Have a look at this video and see how Eric works
We all remember “Asadake” (The Asada family), here is the second part. A new photo album. Romantism, wedding, and birth.
Do you think it’s the way we see people when we are born ?

I have been asked to be juror for the Paris Photo book prize during Paris Photo. This was organised by Aperture, and Paris Photo, and the idea was to select the best photobook of the last 15 years. There was a selection of 60 books. This one was one of the 60 books, so after the vote I ran to the Akaaka booth, and bought the book.
I was very happy and honored to be one of the jurors, I worked for a few days on this, looking at the books, and now I’m looking for a few of the selected books.
