Biography

Emma Jane Brennan (b.1985, Ireland) completed an M.A Photography Degree at The Sir John Cass School of Art, Media & Design, London (2010). Based in the UK and Ireland, Emma has been working professionally and exhibiting since 2007.

Her work explores the figurative and captured landscapes surrounding the themes of identity and community. Emma’s approach tends toward the realist and her pieces are often underlined by the interplay of textures.

Emma’s photographic practice is concerned with a subjective interaction with the places, communities and cultures she explores and assumes a transient point of view to evocatively capture these interactions.

Her approach to wedding photography mixes natural photo-documentary and classic wedding photography to capture the essence of the day from varying angles and compositions.
