Eric Weeks


Eric Week’s photographs from the series “World Was in the Face of the Beloved” are about a character, Stacy, who is becoming one within a given landscape. She is someone who questions her place in the universe. She is his protagonist. There is the suggestion of spiritual tranquility in the photographs. He wants his photographs to offer a respite from all the courser conundrums of humanity. His photographs speak about ideas of beauty: the beauty of this woman, the beauty of the specific style of clothing which speaks so much of Stacy’s character, the beauty of the landscape and the figure relating to that space, the beauty of color relationships and the beauty of analog photography. There are aspects of portraiture in the work, as well as self-portraiture and fictional narrative. He wants to blur the line between these different strategies, creating a hybrid of the three. There are also numerous art historical and cultural references embedded in this series of photographs, offering further complexities. Eric Weeks was born in 1965, he is a based between New York and Pennsylvania. He studied photography at Yale School of Art (MFA) and School of Visual Arts (BFA). Eric Weeks is currently an Assistant Professor at the Pennsylvania College of Art and Design in Lancaster, PA
