Emma Robinson

Early career

Emma is an artist primarily working with staged still life photography, inspired by memento mori and vanitas paintings. Her work reflects on the continuous cycle of life and death, and incorporates personal narratives, a sense of time and references to the past, present and future. The use of the staged still life allows her to set the stage for an imagined scene, the stage being as important as the things in it. Emma's background in architecture also influences her work, and can be seen in the spatial qualities of her images and a fascination with the life of things. read full statement
