Holden Richards — One Eno
My ongoing project of photographing the Eno River that flows through Orange, and Durham counties has been active for more than a decade. I have made photographs here in all seasons, at all times of day, in most locations along the river. The river has offered an ever-changing, constantly evolving location for the making of photographs. It’s a portrait of a subject that won’t sit still. An attempt to photograph an evolving, living entity that has played a huge role in the history and development of the areas around it. It’s also a place where I find exceptional solace and meaning.
Lately I am using only large-format cameras, mostly older than 100 years old, and contact printing the results in the traditional wet darkroom.
We are delighted to welcome Holden to Aimonephoto!
