Emma Phillips (Sorrento, 1989) is a photographer based in Melbourne, Australia. Her recent exhibition ‘Too Much to Dream’ turned its gaze toward a speculative mode of image making, using image and text to proposition representational discourses, exchanges between subjects’ and their image and the intimate, idiosyncratic nature of photographs. Emma is an occasional writer and teacher on photographic practice, contributing to journals such as The Heavy Collective and teaching at Penumbra Foundation. She graduated in 2017 with an MFA from the University of Hartford’s International Limited-Residency program. Emma is represented by ReadingRoom, Melbourne.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
