Emma Blackshaw is a photo-based artist residing in Bradford, Ontario. She creates built on-site interventions that temporarily alter a landscape through the genre of night photography. The interventions explore the unique characteristics that lighting can produce within a space. The work focuses on her relationship with Canadian landscapes and how she can stage scenes that exist somewhere between reality and imagination. The lighting transforms the landscapes into mysterious, spooky, and dream-like environments.
Her series Emerging Existence appeared in Applied Arts Magazine for the 2014 Student Awards publication. Emma completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography at Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto.
