"Arcadia: An Ongoing Exploration"
Erica Catherine Matthews is an emerging photographer based in Kingston, NY. Matthews has an artistic past in floral design and creation. Much of her current work focuses on themes of life, death, and what it means to be temporary. These themes are explored through arranged sets, designed and composed in her studio. Her work features real flora and vegetation, skeletal prompts, and creatures of flight, such as butterflies. Her work can be found on Instagram, @I_am_having_a_thought.
