Eric Valli is no day-tripper

And that’s a great thing.


And that’s a great thing. Coming from the hard-worker’s school of photography (back in the days when magazines had photography budgets), Eric has travelled to meet some of the least visited and most interesting peoples on the planet, and has spent serious time getting to know them. This allows him to make an honest, insightful and respectful document of the way they spend their time on Earth, where some photographers would bring their own preconceptions to the table and impose them onto their work, leaving after a few days.

His photographs have an elegant minimalism and they fully exploit the dynamic range of 35mm film. His portraits never seem to sensationalise the humdrum as many ‘street’ photographers try to, and his restrained palettes and uncluttered compositions recall the very best of fashion photography.

We’d love to redesign Eric’s site, so if you do happen to see this Eric then feel free to get in touch!
