The title, ‘Moments in Time’ refers to my limited opportunities for photography, having to weave my photographic opportunities into the rest of my life, grabbing ‘moments in time’ and using a more spontaneous approach to photography, seeing photographic potential in less obvious places. Subject matter is mainly landscape, urban details and street photography. I particularly enjoy images which evoke a mood, tell a story or provoke a question. I use digital manipulation to add to the mood and to direct the eye of the viewer to recreate the image that I ‘saw’ when I initially made the image, which may not have been the image which was actually there.
Erica is a member of the Gamma Photoforum and details of her work can be found there.
