Emily White

Adjunct Professor

Department of Photography + Film

Emily White (b. 1990, Bremo Bluff, VA) is an artist known for utilizing historic photographic processes to reframe the contemporary landscape, addressing cultural narratives relating to nature, connection and identity. Taking her mobile darkroom along backroads, highways and alleys, she frames urban edens, rural sprawl and the blur in between. She is building an archive of perception–attempting to fix emotional responses to the modern natural world. Documenting physical, spiritual and environmental shapes, her practice is not confined by the processes she utilizes, but rather they serve as a means of accessing the space between truth and fiction. Her works vary from original tintypes to large-scale darkroom prints, seeking to make a living image by any means necessary.
