ED ECKSTEIN

At a very early age I knew that photography was my calling and that there was never going to be a plan b. In the mid 60’s I began my career as a “self unemployed” photographer in Philadelphia, I am fortunate to still be working in this wonderful profession.

I tend to work in the non profit and editorial sectors with occasional work in the corporate and design areas. Along the way I found my self stopping to examine situations that was of personal interest, especially social issues. Many of these projects evolved into books and exhibits. A selected group includes some of the following:

  • Coming of Rage, a exhibit and catalog of the civil rights era at 222 Gallery, Philadelphia, 2007
  • Bricks & Mortals, a exhibit and book commissioned by the James A. Michener Museum, examining the life of a hospital, 2008
  • Rez White & Blue, exhibit, Native Americans, Fairleigh Dickinson University 2012
  • Allentown X7, a book and exhibit commissioned by the Allentown Art Museum, 2016
  • Grunts, a book published by Schiffer Publishing, US Army and the draft prior to the all volunteer army , 2017

My work is primarily film based black & white, all of which I process and print.

I reside in the town of Easton, PA , I am married with two children and a dog owner.
