A self-taught photographer and a believer in lifelong learning,
She recently graduated with an MA in Creative Writing. Many of her images are captured in Derbyshire & Yorkshire, in heritage locations across the country, in rural towns and villages and the Peak District National Park.
Very eclectic in what she chooses to capture, Emma will photograph whatever catches her eye, though she’s particularly drawn to floral and botanical work, and recording the distinctive qualities of British culture and heritage.
The challenge of marrying subject and composition, and the stimulation of the imaginative and emotional response are key to what keeps her motivated.
In her floral and botanical work, Emma sometimes sees a connection with the traditional Japanese haiku poem: natural, often distinctively seasonal, with the emphasis on the impression the subject creates in the moment.
This inspires the writing of complementary haiku poems which are then overlaid onto the photograph to create 'PhotoHaiku'.
‘Up to the Light’ was exhibited at The Old Station Gallery, Rowsley, Derbyshire for their Open Exhibition, 2016.
