Eric is a friend I met about a year ago — a young bright, serious young man, who’s greatest challenge was finding love. A conversationalist and giving person that hurt deeply inside when things fell through. I was a person he confided in. It was one of those nights. He called and said that he wanted to be photographed feeling exactly as such: in pain. This is what came from the experience as we listened to Natalie Imbruglia’s ‘Counting Down the Days’ — a perfect union of his and her feelings combined. I hope you enjoy these photographs, as they tell a deeper side to Eric’s beauty, a beauty that goes down and into one’s heart. Thank you Eric for sharing your moments with me, as I captured the vulnerable side of you.
