Solo exhibitions were soon held, in Vancouver; Toronto; Houston, Texas; Milan, Italy; Mainz, Germany; Berlin, Germany; Zingst, Germany; and on Salt Spring Island. In September 2011 the German Goethe Institute invited Klemm to show his Metamorphosis photographs in Paris. The show went on to become a travelling exhibition visiting French cities including Bordeaux, Lille, Brest and Nancy. The very successful show has now come to a conclusion in Toulouse.
Gary Michael Dault wrote in his Globe and Mail column in 2005 about Eric's Metamorphosis exhibition at Odon Wagner Contemporary, Toronto: "The Metamorphosis photographs are deeply involving studies of moody details of the British Columbian rainforest, apparently pastoral meditations which, upon close inspection, invariably reveal the presence of decaying automobiles lurking like furtive animals in their fern-congested shadows".
