Erik Williams: A Sad and Beautiful World
Erik Williams’ aesthetic is informed by the opportunity for rawness that his camera allows him, helping him to create moments of honesty.
Says Williams, “I use my photography to catch a glimpse of what I see, in order to share it with others. I look for the beauty in any and everything that most overlook.”
David Borawski curated Williams in a way that references the process in which he makes his images, taking the viewer on a walk with Williams as he captures an often unseen story of Hartford.
About Erik Williams
Erik Williams, also known as Eaze, is a self-taught street photographer and Hartford native. Williams fell in love with this style of photography because it allows him to connect with people from all walks and to share their stories candidly through the lens of his camera.
“My choice of subject is anything organically appealing to my eye, whether it’s a kid sleeping on the city bus or a reflection of a building from a puddle. I enjoy using natural light, shadows, contrast and clarity as a way to communicate the essence of what I see. I’m drawn to people that radiate energy and great character, because that’s all that truly matters. I am inspired by their stories.”
