Many photographers have done projects about people and characters on the beach, but not many people have done specific projects about beach lovers. That's what photographer Erica Reade has been working on for the past few years. Erica, who hails from Montreal but now resides in NYC, has been in love with documentary photography work in the same way many people these days are enamoured with the idea of capturing the moment. By surrounding herself with a number of well meaning photographers, networking, and good work she has come to do great things with her photography. She got into photography really early on in life and even decided to drop her Physics class in favor of a Photography and Darkroom class in school. Combine this with lots of travel, and you've not only got someone with a case of the shutterbug, but someone who is bound to love the documentary process.
