MaryJo Ericson - Photographer and Visual Story Teller

headshot.jpg

Before I was a photographer, I was an aerialist. From the ages of 12-18 I performed professionally on a variety of apparatuses including aerial silks, hoop, and trapeze. My experience in the aerial arts world led me to understand and appreciate the production and collaboration it takes to tell a story and put on a show. I worked with a variety of people including choreographers, backstage crew, directors, and other performers. I saw the true magic of performance in the work behind the scenes. This has informed my photography practice as I see a photograph as a collaborative process through which I seek to produce and capture. Through my work I hope to bring people into another world and tell stories through light and gesture.
