Emma Booth is a Freelance Photographer and Curator, based in the South West of England. 

Graduating from the University of Plymouth in summer 2020 with a First-class Honours Degree in Photography, Emma's socially engaged creative practice combines the realms of photography, curation, installation, archival work and digital project management. 

Emma's photographic practice often derives from her own experiences, in deeply emotive, reflective works with broader links to the human condition. Her projects reveal connections to family history, exploring her personal role as a young adult carer and tackling complex interlinked themes of isolation, chronic illness, grief, loss and memory. Both people and place are essential to her practice, as she observes and constructs scenes navigating through these associated emotional complexities.

In 2018, Emma was appointed Creative Director for The South West Collective Ltd.  She was lead curator for the second annual exhibition Finding A Way Home  (April 2021), following the success of TSWC’s debut exhibition Visual Storytelling (February 2020) in collaboration with Artizan Gallery and local partnerships.

Emma has success in national photographic competitions, including BJP's Portrait of Britain,  AOP Student Awards 2020 and winning the APHE Photomeet Bursary Award.
