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 learning from people who maintain strong relationships with the natural world. Her first monograph, Sami-Walking with Reindeer, reflects her time living in the Scandinavian Arctic. Her second monograph, Materia Prima, is a collection of photographs and poems that explore ritual, time, and the process of remembering we are nature. 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. Erika is a lecturer at The Peruvian University of Applied Sciences in Lima, Peru.
