ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Eric Seplowitz (born 1974, Connecticut, US) studied Geology and Philosophy at Union College in Schenectady, NY. His love of the outdoors and the natural world led him to teaching outdoor education in Indiana through Indiana University’s outdoor education center, Bradford Woods, as well as visitor services at Seney National Wildlife Refuge in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Collectively, those experiences helped to create his desire to see the natural world in different ways and how to connect people with what the natural world has to offer.
In his latest series, Micro Landscapes – Small on a Large Scale, Eric examines the direct connection between what is happening in the larger macro environment, to what is happening on the micro level. The natural world includes our relationship to the planet…everything we have is derived from it: our food, water, life, and social connections. These tiny mineral and rock structures are literally the building blocks for everything around us– they play a major part in how relate with the world we live in.
Using a 50MP camera and macro lenses, Eric is able to reach a depth of detail in a tiny piece of nature that is easily overlooked by the human eye. Images can be from a single exposure or a composite of 100s of photos each focused at a slightly different spot, bringing many layers into focus at the same time. The results are greater clarity in an abstract form, invoking the beauty and magnificence of nature on the smallest and grandest scale.
