Erik Doty

I was born in Nashville, TN, but left after high school. I've lived in Colorado, Chicago, Wyoming, and just moved back to Nashville from Knoxville, TN. I was a producer at a creative agency in Knoxville for 4 years. I left the commercial world and have been focusing my time on making my own art work. I recently finished a documentary about the graffiti culture in Tennessee called "Up Here Kids". I've shown it in a couple of cities around the country including, Nashville, Memphis, San Francisco, Seattle, and another screening in San Francisco with Adobe and AIGA. Since finishing up that project, I've been spending a lot of time working with film, mostly medium format and some 35mm. It's so easy these days to record a video, it's been a nice contrast to really slow down and create single exposures.
