The Reimagine New England suite is a portfolio comprised of 48 large archival pigment prints each with an original poem printed on the interleaf vellum. The Crappy Negative series utilizes decades old scratched and neglected film, and a cheap "inappropriate" scanner to set the motif for creative resurrection of an often dirty heavily damaged early B&W archive.
Voyageur Press has published two books of Paul Eric's photography, Lighthouses of the Mid-Atlantic Coast and Backroads of New Jersey. He was also the creative specialist for New England with the Liaison Agency and Getty Images for over ten years.
Earlier work in multimedia on these subjects was supported by grants, artist-in-residencies, and performance by the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York Council on the Arts, The Massachusetts Council for the Arts, the Massachusetts Bicentennial Commission, the Boston Film/Video Foundation, and ZBS Foundation.
A master printer and experienced gallerist, he currently maintains a small private gallery in Stafford Springs CT.
