About the Photographer
For more than 30 years, Eric Sander’s photographs have been regularly published in some of the best magazines worldwide and in more than 20 books. Eric Sander grew up in France and started working as a Photo Editor at Gamma Photo Agency in Paris in 1977. He became a freelance photo reporter in 1983, and moved to Los Angeles in 1985. There, he explored California’s golden years by depicting American’s love for the unusual, through eccentric portraits and amazing ways of life. U.S. magazines such as Smithsonian, Life, Time, Newsweek, BusinessWeek often called on Eric Sander’s talent. Soon after, he also became a regular correspondent for French magazines (VSD, L’Express, Le Figaro Magazine, Grands Reportages, Point de Vue…). In 2001, Eric Sander settled back in Paris to rediscover France’s architecture and landscape heritage and the incredible effects of the light there. While covering his first story of the just-then-restored gardens of Marqueyssac in Perigord in southwest France, a new passion was born: capturing gardens and landscapes via photography. Eric has had nine books on gardens alone published since 2010. Consequently, he also developed a major interest in luxurious estates and in interiors. Today, Eric mainly works on assignment for private estate owners (extraordinary homes, vineyards and great gardens), magazines (Figaro magazine, Smithsonian..), publishers (Flammarion, Acte Sud, Xavier Barral Editions, Ulmer, Gourcuff Gradenigo, Rustica), landscape designers (Louis Benech), interior designers (Jacques Garcia), and major events (Garden and Contemporary Art Festival in Chaumont-Sur-Loire). www.ericsander.com
