ABOUT THE ARTIST: Erin Douglas is a travel and lifestyle documentary photographer. After discovering her love for traveling on a solo trip to the Philippines, she has placed travel at the center of her photography practice. She strives to capture the essence of life around her and share genuine and authentic stories. Her work has been featured in photography exhibitions, the NY Times listed book “Shut Up and Run”, Travel Noire, Essence, Black Enterprise and the Baltimore Sun. Currently, Erin continues to work on her ongoing project which focuses on images and stories of diversity at Burning Man, stemming from her desire to compel more people of diverse backgrounds to see the importance of travel when it comes to travel. In sharing the personal interviews of her subjects along side the images, Erin hopes the stories will evoke a deeper connection to the photography, to inspire and stimulate the audience's’ desire to learn more (about Burning Man, the stories, and travel).
