Emily’s work has questioned different conceptual outcomes and mainly uses the landscape as a conductor to express her vulnerability as an artist, through giving energy and time to a particular site.  In Emily’s current work, she focuses on the longing memories that she holds within the certain landscape. Surrounded in the landscape, Emily photographs with a missing presence which creates an absence in the atmosphere which is present within the work. She is concerned about holding onto the original memory whilst photographing the landscape and her different yet changing emotions towards it now.  Common to Emily’s experimentation with photography, video, found material and writing, these are all part of an ongoing concern with the narrative component of the work. With the development of combining photography and writing, she has extended her practice, working towards a visual installation with written work alongside. This typically happens when the emotions, memories and connotations associated with landscapes that exposed to daily, conflict with the idea that they feel so remote and out of reach. Emily’s photographic work helps to explore interesting and dynamic relationships between human and land and how a certain place can greatly influence our emotions.
