This is a portrait I recently shot of my good friend and colleague Eric Becker, who is a director / documentary filmmaker. For over a year, Becker has been working on his film, Sound & Vision, which “explores issues facing the nearshore environment. It is a film about the oceans, told through the stories of people working to clean up, protect, and restore habitat in Puget Sound and beyond. The film is scheduled for release this fall.” I really like this portrait, because it hints at the chaos of documentary filming, while capturing the beauty of the Puget Sound that Becker’s film strives to preserve.
I was lucky enough to see the film at a pre-screening not too long ago, and it is really beautiful. Not your typical everybody freak out, we have a problem documentary, but one that explains a problem and offers hope, as well as a call to action.
