Since leaving her first home in the Catskill Mountains, Alex Emmons has moved, traveled and lived abroad extensively. She is influenced by her family’s migratory patterns and immigration history. Creating a visual dialogue while photographing, she is inspired by places, memories, and current events. From digital to 19th century photographic processes, Alex Emmons' work describes her thoughts as well as her “gut” responses to the spaces and objects she is capturing.
Alex Emmons received her B.A. in Studio Art from Denison University and her M.F.A. in Photography from Arizona State University. She resides in Oklahoma City, where she is an Assistant Professor of Photography at Oklahoma City University.
