There is a reason why people once held the superstitious belief that a camera captured the soul of the person being photographed and in a way the work of Emma Howell addresses it. Emma Howell has decided to print her images on malleable glass to better immortalize the beauty of a person or place.
In a time when photography is so 'easy' that any smuck with a digital camera can call themselves a photographer, Emma Howell goes to painstaking lengths to create works of art that speak to them on a deeper level. She writes, "Most people are not able to experience a place that is unaffected by the human presence. So I’m creating a way for others to experience this in a way that’s more than looking at a flat print of the cliché beach we all see and know."
