Humanity Portraits by Eva Ericksen

Eva Ericksen’s two-day exhibition, Humanity Portraits, was inspired by the need to do something in light of events involving the government and women’s’ issues. Using a restored Canon Demi S half frame from 1964 to capture women in natural settings, Ericksen’s focus was to be as authentic as possible with the film and camera so that each portrait would have a raw and personal feel. “These portraits illustrate the unique individual strength we carry and how together we can create unity,” she says. “There is a way to create a safe space for women to regain their strength.”
