Profile Picture - Emma McEvoy Image

For Emma, imagery is seen as an opportunity to encapsulate not only people but also their entire story – something she is able to achieve by photographing from the inside out.

Her work often explores unique and symbolic aspects of the human condition, a theme in which she says has been heavily influenced by a passion for art, culture and psychology.  

“I get a lot of inspiration from music, poetry and reading and writing but mainly it’s about people and real life experiences that I or others I know have had,” she said.

“I like to sort of take their story and create it in more mythical, fantasy kind of way.”

After recently graduating from her Fine Art Major at the Photography Studies College in Southbank, the 26-year-old enjoyed a break-through year in 2013, having spent six months in Iceland creating her biggest body of work to date.

“Iceland, the land of fire and ice, has so many metaphors and contradictions that are in line with my work about finding the balance between light and dark,” she said.

“It’s about women and feminine consciousness and the balance between the light and dark or shadow aspects of ourselves.”

She was awarded with the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) Student Photographer of the Year and the Australian Commercial and Media Photographers (ACMP) Portraiture of the Year.

Having just started up her own studio, she is now looking to conduct her next body of work in New Zealand and take on a bachelor degree with a hope of getting into teaching and art therapy.

She says the Photography Studies College has provided her with the perfect platform to realize her passion and potential.

“It’s been amazing, I really love all the lecturers that work here,” she said.

“You’ll make your best work if you’re living to your passions and working towards what you want to say and that’s what I love about it here.”
