Thank you for your responses, Eric!

Had seen Eric’s work shared a lot by photographers in the community on Instagram and his photo’s just grab you with their raw surrealism attributed to his visual wit. There are a lot of familiar street photographer motifs some of which you can even see in his responses that he just does better most. For example his response to question 7, who hasn’t done a mannequin in a window… but the clean Magritte-esque shot is superior as well as his response to question 9 with the tree shadow and perfect juxtaposition in regards to scale. His visual ideas are uncommonly sharp and clear. For more check below:
