Nils Ericson, American (b. 1977)
Nils Ericson's photographs are largely documentary and based on his perceptions of athleticism and physicality, the end result tending towards nature and the beast.
Born in Des Moines, Iowa, Nils has always been drawn to sports and has worked on projects for Nike, ESPN, Puma, Adidas, Victory Journal, and more. An avid athlete and longtime college basketball fan, the six basketball goal photographs offered are born out of his love for the game.
Nils received his B.A. from Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire and earned his M.F.A. from the Rhode Island School of Design. Nils and his wife Regina, who together run Creators Management, split their time between New York, Oregon and Iowa alongside their children Emmet and Faye, and dogs Pearl, Edith, and Nellie.
