Eric Lindbloom, who makes his home in Poughkeepsie, NY, writes of his work: The salt marshes along our Atlantic Coast were once seen as abundant, naturally occurring hay meadows. Now they exist, if at all, as narrow, overlooked verges between land and sea. These photographs are studies of the shapes and rhythms imposed on these grasses by seasonal high tides and wind. My intent is to show the astonishing energy and vitality still found in these fragile endangered marshes at the end of three centuries of residential and industrial encroachment. Lindbloom has had solo shows at Donskoj & Co., Carrie Haddad Gallery, and Gallery 292, all in New York; group shows include those at the Friends of Photography and SF Camerawork, both in California. His monograph, Angels at the Arno, was published by David Godine in 1994.
