I’ve been taking photographs since I landed my first camera while traveling through the Middle East and Asia in the 1970s.  Much of my work has focused on other places and cultures, among them Cuba, Myanmar, and Europe.  My photographs have been exhibited in Vermont, New Hampshire, Boston, and New York City.  Past shows have included Transcending the Limits of Age (portraits of track and field athletes of advanced age); The Combination (focusing on the amateur boxer Ali Watson); Sunset Park, Brooklyn (two days in the life of a city park); and, in process, Eli’s Town (“seeking family roots in Ukraine and finding kindness and brutality in ordinary places”).

I live in Middlesex, Vermont.  For purchasing inquiries and other information, please contact me by email at eburg4@gmail.com or by phone at (802) 272-4920.
