about Erika

Erika Larsen is a transdisciplinary storyteller who believes that photography is one of the most important ways to explore our understanding of time. She is fascinated by how we communicate with nature and often focuses on people who maintain strong relationships with the natural world.

Erika’s first monograph, Sami-Walking with Reindeer, a reflection of her time living in the Scandinavian Arctic, was published in 2013. Her second monograph, Materia Prima, a collection of photographs that explores ritual, time, and the process of remembering we are nature, was published in 2021.

She has been a photographer for over 20 years, creating portraits and human-interest stories worldwide. Her work has been included in the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, National Geographic Society, Fotografiska Museum, University of Kentucky Art Museum, and the United States Embassy in Oslo.
