Eric Uhlfelder is a fine-art photographer, having focused on cities in the Eastern US and across Western Europe. His work is connected with his original career in city planning and urban design. He also is a writer, having covered various subjects including Paris and Venice, city planning, finance, photography, and theatre.
The black-and-white pieces of Venice [1987-1998] evoke a very different image of this remarkable place. Reducing the city's wide range of colors to various tones of gray, the artist focuses on Venice's equally compelling composition: the juxtaposition of building and space, the integration of structure and water, and the outright splendor of the city's architectural forms.
