ARTIST STATEMENT: Growing up in New York City helped start Emily's exploration into photography. Her craft in digital photography first came about at the High School of Art and Design where she majored in photography. After years of pursing it as a hobby, she now is a still photographer for the motion picture industry and plans to continue her expansion and knowledge in the art world. Her work illuminates the characteristics of place and culture that are not commonly showcased in travel advertising, giving the viewer an idea of what daily life is like in the places she visits. Here is a mix of her travel and street photographs taken during her trips throughout Spain, Cuba, Costa Rica & Mexico.
