Born in 1991, Eric Adams lives in his hometown of Silsbee, Tx. After completing an associate’s degree with audio engineering at Lamar State College Port Arthur, he picked up a camera and headed to Lamar University. There he found a passion for the darkroom process. His work is influenced by the history of photography, and the motifs made from the southern landscape. Adams tells a story about his hometown, in a body of work called The Pines. The photographs of Silsbee traveled to New Orleans as a part of a international photo conference called PhotoNola. Currently he is telling a story about the land he grew up on called Magnolia by Morning. The work premieres during FotoFest this year at Lone Star College-Montgomery.
