The Salt Marsh Grass series began with a walk into an Atlantic Coast salt meadow. On close inspection, the matted cowlicks and the deep shadows created by them projected astonishing energy and rhythms. They seemed to warrant an extended study. What comes of spending half the day with your feet in salt water and the other half in salt air?
Eric Lindbloom: I am an independant photographer who has worked on a series of projects over the last thirty years. Selections from my photographs made in the Atlantic coast salt marshes were published as Salt Grass by Lodima Press as part of their Portfolio Series. (www.lodimapress.com) An extended Diana camera portrait of the city of Florence appeared as Angels at the Arno from David R. Godine Publisher. (www.godine.com) I also collaborated with poet Nancy Willard on New York Sate’s Hudson Valley, which resulted in a limited edition book, The River That Runs Two Ways, from Brighton Press.

Despite once having labored in the computer trade to keep my family of three in bread and shoes, I now perversely continues to work in film and silver prints in a this decade of vastly superior digital cameras and print control. Selections of the photographs are carried by the School House Gallery in Provincetown, Massachusetts (www.schoolhouseprovincetown.com) and the Howard Greenberg Gallery in New York City.
