“Eric Porter’s photographs demonstrate a curiosity and love of the city around him.
By abstracting and cropping the everyday Porter redeems the urban landscape.
The inquisitive nature of his work invites the audience to investigate
decontextualized vignettes of vivid color, rough texture and geometric shape”.
