IN CONVERSATION WITH ERIC RENARD
Photography by Eric Renard
Interview by Melanie Meggs
Eric Renard is a Los Angeles based photographer. Born in New York, he attended school in Riverdale, New York. Eric spent his summers in Maine, where he was first exposed to photography and learned his way around a dark room. Eric’s passion for photography was once again ignited at Tufts University in Boston, where he studied under Siegfried Halus. After graduating, Eric moved to San Francisco, as an architectural photographer before moving to Los Angeles. Eric’s unique exposure to both urban and rural living can be seen throughout his work, as he is equally at home in both settings. Whether working in black and white or vibrant colors, his urban places and rural landscapes often reflect an eerie sense of peace and quiet, rarely portraying more than one or two people.
“I don’t see the world completely in black and white. Sometimes I do.”
