Emily was born in Orlando, FL, and was the firstborn child of triplets. In Spring 2020, she graduated with her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Florida State University, with a focus in photography and printmaking.
Using photography, my work describes strength using the body. Subjects are aware of the camera and aware of themselves, bringing the viewer into the work through direct gaze. The figures are seen adjacent to urban landscapes filled with vegetation, often nearing sunset or at night. Shadows and light depict the passage of time and bring attention to a transitory period. I aim to create an open dialogue between the the subject and viewer, shifting these fleeting moments into permanent occasions.
