My brother-in-law, George Palaziol, recommended this to me. George had the opportunity to meet the artist and was present at the photo shoot represented below.
Eric Curry is a Los Angeles based photographer whose “American Pride and Passion” large-scale photographic prints focus on classic American automobiles, airplanes, and huge road machinery. The remarkable images “bring out the pride and passion in everyday objects.” Each shot is constructed by combining and layering multiple exposures. Each exposure renders only a small part of a gigantic scene, but is exquisitely lit with a keen eye toward textural and dimensional rendition, color saturation, and visual clarity. When combined in a single image we are confronted with a hyper-real, high-resolution version of the world, more clearly focused and more viscerally intense than our experience of reality itself.
Eric describes his craft as follows, “Through my photographs, I strive to share with the viewers the passions enjoyed by our fellow countrymen. Whether laborer, professional, volunteer, Corporate CEO or just a guy who owns a cool, old pickup truck, we all share this American experience together”.
