Erik Asla is a Norwegian photographer. After moving to Los Angeles from Paris, France, he became a protégé of celebrated image-maker Herb Ritts. Resisting the urge to focus exclusively on the genres in which his mentor built an illustrious career, Asla was drawn to the solitary endeavor and unconstrained expressive boundaries presented by fine art photography.
With his project 'The Stillness of Motion', Asla is seeking to create semi-abstract graphic representations that also convey a perception of the sea in its most paradoxical state; moving, rushing, yet offering a sense of serenity.
Numerous fine art collectors have acquired artwork from the series. A solo exhibition with ten large scale pieces opened to a sizable crowd at Janssen Artspace in Palm Springs on June 17th, 2017.
