Emerson’s photography captures a particular moment in his studio, everything you see within the exhibition happened and is real. He constructs a set using a tank, water, glass plates, mirrors and coloured and UV lights. Flowers are submerged in the tank as the core of each piece, Emerson then introduces inks, dyes and paints to imbue the scene with a sense of movement and life. It is this decisive moment which Emerson captures within his photography.

The artist

Charles Emerson

Charles Emerson studied BA Hons Photography at Falmouth College of Arts. His fine art work has been exhibited both in the UK and internationally. Charles also works for a number of commercial and editorial clients.

Charles Emerson is a fine art photographer who explores the creation of palimpsests by building layers within his photographic work. Whether using physical layers constructed in a studio, creating multiple exposures in camera or using objects and effects in front of the lens or within the camera itself.
Charles’s work is often described as ‘painterly’, he grew up surrounded by his father’s etchings, paintings, and sculptures. As a youngster Charles aspired to be a painter also, instead he discovered photography to be his medium.

Charles does not aspire to create straight physical representations of his chosen subjects but rather to create a work that is imbued with a greater depth and is in some-way intrinsically connected to him as an artist.
