Emma Whitman Artist Statement

I am Emma Whitman and I'm a Wausau based photographer, specializing in portraits, conceptual, and landscape photography, I enjoy using photography as a way to make people feel emotions through art.

I have always been interested in dark, mysterious subjects. With abandoned buildings, they are a perfect subject, there are so many unanswered questions that surround them. Searching for abandoned places is one of my biggest hobbies- I often drive around on back roads with my

mom and sister to pass time, I always take the scenic route. There are so many forgotten stories lying behind in these structures, and by photographing them, I take pride in the fact that I keep their stories alive just a little bit longer.
