Erika Larsen uses photography, video, and writing to learn intimately about cultures and people that maintain strong connections with nature. She has spent the last 15 years creating portraits to accompany human-interest stories for a range of magazines, including National Geographic, where she is a contract photographer. Erika's work has been featured at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, National Geographic Society, the Swedish Museum of Ethnography, and Ajtte Sàmi Museum, and she is the recipient of both a Fulbright Fellowship and a World Press Award. Her recently published monograph is entitled Sàmi: Walking With Reindeer. This is her second year teaching for The Workshops. Erika's website is www.erikalarsenphoto.com.
