About the Book
In Memory of Water, Canadian photographer Eric Boutilier-Brown explores imaging the body in its first, and most natural, element. We begin our existence floating safe in an amniotic sea and are born into the world instinctively knowing water is life. The fluidity of these indoor and outdoor nudes remind us of our essential connection with water.
Involved with the arts from a young age, Eric began photographing at 17 prior to attending the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design from which he graduated in 1995. Art often shows the marvelous in the common place, and this is what Eric strives to do, offering the viewer insight into something new, yet undeniably familiar. His primary subjects are the Nude and Architecture. Eric currently works with digital cameras (conventional and infrared), and has previously worked in a wide variety of film formats from 35mm to 12"x20" view cameras.
