Erik Eskedal says of his work, "I look to portray three different perspectives relating to boundaries (in no particular order):  Caught on the boundary, being within boundaries of changing perspectives, and a fixed and known boundary."

Eskedal is a fine-art photographer who lives in New England and captures the simple randomness of life. 

A former truck driver and long-time student of the road, he strives to seek out beauty within the rawness of life and roadways. 

He grew up around art as his mother was a high-school art teacher.  He developed a fascination for cars and the road at an early age and was constantly drawing cars.  
Enjoying oil painting and illustration, he graduated with a degree in art from Suffolk University/New England School of Art and Design.

Exhibited both Nationally and Internationally, over the last four years, Eskedal has decided to make photography the channel through which to share his uniquely positive outlook.
