Eric Gottesman is a collaborative artist working with photography and video. For the last seven years, he has been working on a project with Sudden Flowers Productions, a children’s art collective in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia that he helped found. Together, they have produced imagery that describes how the children’s lives have been affected by poverty and disease. They have shown the work locally in English and Amharic and recently toured a public exhibit around Ethiopia. Gottesman has exhibited and published his work from Ethiopia and from other projects in Europe, Africa, the Middle East and North America. His most recent exhibits were at ESpace SD in Beirut, Lebanon, Al Riwaq Gallery in Manama, Bahrain and Gallery Wedat in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
