Michigan-born photographer Eric Ogden draws inspiration from the landscape and inhabitants of his native Midwest, looking for unexpected angles on the familiar through the prism of childhood experience. An unseen human presence inhabits his series – this visual tension is the psychological element of the image made manifest. Shaped by intuition, emotion comes to the fore, eclipsing technique with an implication of what remains hidden in the shadows at the edge of the frame. A narrative might evolve out of the smallest detail or the quality of light in one of his compositions, creating the impression of a recent, lingering departure, or pending arrival. Everyday objects are imbued with character, and hint at a deeper significance, visualising an inexplicable feeling. Curiosity and delight in the everyday enables Ogden to isolate the extraordinary from the commonplace. His photographs have featured in The New Yorker and Vanity Fair. www.ericogden.com.
