Film Photo, Mixed Media work
Hi! My name is Emily, though usually I feel most “me” in my artist persona “parallelstateofgrace”.
I am a creative who is currently focused on film photography and collage work. Film first found me in 2019 after a short lived Tinder date serendipitously gifted me an old camera of his, now my Nikon FM, which is still my SLR camera of choice. That camera has been symbolic and revolutionary for my growth as an artist and being.
Aside from photography, I have been creating art in many different mediums throughout my life.
I unexpectedly dove deep into self portrait work in the very beginning of 2023 when I bought my first TLR, my 1940’s Argus Argoflex. I shoot majority black and white film and at the moment am biased to my medium format camera, the Yashica C. All of my photo work is hand developed, scanned, and printed by me.
