LTL Story Teller
Erin arrived on the islands of Bunaken and Siladen with husband and water project volunteer, Chris Roberts.
These remote islands offer a complex look at communities both visually stunning and physically isolated from the rest of Indonesia. This underlying contradiction is seen in the way people interact with outsiders and suffer from long-term effects of island heat, sun, lack of water and psychological detachment from others. Erin’s work carefully reflects these opposing images of play versus struggle, joy and desperation, nature versus nurture, while finding a delicate balance that exists in between.
She captured the volunteer nurses, students, doctors, and local translators. Her portraits suggest ordinary subjects that appear complex, examined from an inquisitive lens. In 2015, her work will be showcased in Melbourne, Australia and in New Orleans, USA.
