From studying Emma Sweeney‘s work, one understands a few things.
First, Emma has a very keen sense of what it takes to portray soft, bliss like, Garden of Eden-esque photographs. Each of her photographs gives the feeling of floating in something like a fairy tale, wings and balloons and soft spoken words. Don’t get me wrong, her photographs also have a bit of ruthless in them too, just a little bit.
The viewer also understands Emma likes to use rather muted earthly tones. Most of her photographs blend with light olives and tans. Perhaps this could be a result of so much skin in her photographs.. No complaints here.
Emma has graduated from London’s Central Saint Martins, a College of Art and Design specializing in photography, after which she worked with Nick Knight.
