"Ericson has always proven to be an eclectic multidisciplinary artist — his previous projects include a series of satirical letters, a 68 foot long drawing of a fantasy city skyline, and the construction of bird apartment buildings (768 homes) on the roof of Kulturhuset in Stockholm. Shot over 13 visits to the ancient city of Palmyra (Tadmor), a UNESCO World Heritage Site located 215km northeast of Damascus, Palmyra strikes a quite different note than Ericson has sounded before — the large-format color photographs are infinitely still, exquisitely composed and reveal his startling sensitivity as a photographer.
