Eric Dusenbery (B.A. Cinema & Photography, Southern Illinois University), is a documentary photographer, an award-winning journalist and a communications specialist. He is the recipient of several grants and sponsorships to produce documentary projects that tell stories to preserve the human spirit and to educate and promote an appreciation for the rich cultural identity of the United States. He frequently uses the traditions of the large format film camera for documentary and commissioned projects that harken back to the Farm Security Administration photographers of the mid-20th century. His photography has been widely exhibited and his work has appeared in numerous national publications.
In addition, career experience includes community engagement projects, multimedia storytelling, feature essays with both photography and writing and developing content for social media. He has created, implemented and maintained social media strategies involving marketing, written communications, photography and content creation for various clients.
Eric is passionate about using curiosity and photography to tell stories.
Whether maneuvering among the rafters in a historic clock tower or crouched in a cooler on a shrimp boat, Eric’s photographic escapades and stories make us eager to begin living a life of curiosity.
