Emerging Talent: Eric Rose’s Raw, Intense Photography

Freckles on skin. The beauty of a clavicle, jutting through fragile epidermis. Long fingers clasped together. Skinned knees. Natural light, wafting across delicate features. The pure gorgeous intensity of being human – and Eric Rose somehow manages to catch them all with one well composed black and white photo. His photos have a sort of gritty dreaminess to them – you can’t help but wonder about the eyes that peer back at you, the situation behind the photo. They instill a sense of art, tranquility, a mellowness with an edge.

Eric Rose hails from Portland, OR and he makes the raw, poignant, HUMAN art. Check out his photo blog here.

    Powerful yes, but could reveal more meaning.

    Need to disagree. I didn’t care for most of it. Didn’t get any meaning out of it. Thanks for sharing it though, I like looking at photography.

    Very nice. They have such a strong, way back retro feel–early 20th Century Photo-Secessionist maybe? Some do feel like they were maybe too directly inspired by other photos, though.

    with the bombardment of images we see everyday, some great, most crappy, to stop and ridicule a photographer is absurd. These are very solid photos, maybe repliers don’t get the story or the context, maybe Eric doesn’t play by your rules. I think anyone that publicly ridicules art in any form should have to share their work as well. I think it’s safe to say that those that take time to speak out against others work have pretty crap work themselves or just need some therapy. Continue shooting Eric, don’t listen to the naysayers, I doubt you do anyway.

    Great photos – especially of people. I would like to follow this blog; however, I can’t find a spot to request updates to new posts.
