It's Laundry Day, and the washing machine is broken. That can only mean one thing: a trip to the local laundromat.
Join Eric Peterson as he takes you on a journey along the highways and byways of North America as he does his laundry. Witness the local laundromat through the eyes of the photographer. Become the therapist's ear as he opens up about his thoughts and feelings as an art series is developed. You will swear by the end that you can smell a hint of dryer sheet and bleach. A peculiar art book, if there ever was one. Grab some quarters and go for the ride.

Eric E. Peterson is an award winning Fine Art Photographer, Artist, and Author based in Corona, California.
Eric is most recognized for his photography as well as
graphic arts which are often started through the photographic process. Never satisfied with one creative endeavor - he is also developing Children's Books and
Poetry Collections. See Literary Works Link at the top.
Eric also dabbles in other medias such as watercolor, pen and wash, digital drawing, as well as acrylic painting. As of yet he has not tried his hand at oil painting. He also has a deep desire to get back to sculpture, one of his favorite subjects during his time as an art major.
A lover of the Old West - he has said that he was born 100 years too late. He loves to translate his photography into an Old West style similar to early daguerrotype. He also enjoys working in Black and White and utilizing symmetry. Throughout the photographic galleries you will find specific art series representing these two loves. Being a conceptual artist as well, he can often be found working multiple art series at a time. If you are a model or desire to assist in the creation of future art projects - check out the MUSE section to learn more.
The definition of art is often debated, but Eric has a pretty simple perspective on that issue. He believes:
“What is confused as a ‘what is art’ debate more often stems from the real question, ‘What is good art and what is bad art?’ That I will leave to the viewer. However, I believe art is the process of intentionally creating something in an effort to convey a message whether specific or abstract.”
When it comes to photography specifically, Eric will tell you that, “It is intentionality that separates the ‘artist’ from the 'accidentalist'. In other words, there should be some imagination, some desire to communicate, some training, and some end-result thinking... beyond a ‘Oooohh - Hey, look at that!...SNAP.’”
