Emma is a photographer and maker, working mainly with staged still life photography, which involves carefully arranging and making objects for the camera.
Inspired by the garden and by nature in it’s wider sense, she reflects on the cycles of life and the passing of time. She photographs objects and explores their potential as metaphors for themes including the transience of life, memory, and the never ending cycles of birth, life and death.
Through the processes of making, arranging, assembling and ultimately photographing, Emma believes that something of the individual psyche is invested.
Her work is thoughtful, precise and delicate, and has been described as having a melancholy feel.
