Emma's work explores the nature of the collaborative portrait seeking out ordinary types by placing ads in classifieds calling for amateur models. My interest is that they want to be photographed. I am not interested in approaching subjects to be photographed, they have to be willing and have an idea of what they want to do. When I'm photographing I don’t want to catch them off guard, I want them to be fully aware of the situation and let them perform for the camera in some sense or another with little direction from me.
