Emma Lambert is an artist and educator based in the West Midlands, UK. Her photographic practice considers the role of the image in the representation of place, the home and the ‘local’ through long term projects, using alternative processes, and experimental publishing. Her research interests combine materiality, craft and process with the social and collaborative potential of the photobook, of making and making things public. Her most recent project is a collaborative publication that merges her research and practice and asks, ‘Where are you a local?’.
Emma is a lecturer on the BA and MA Photography programmes at Coventry University and a PhD researcher with bookRoom at UCA Farnham. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally in group shows and photo festivals. She has contributed to public events, symposia and conferences exploring different areas of her research, from visualising the home, community and place to the role of independent publishing and the photobook as a social object. She is the founder of her own imprint, Silvergrass Press.
Emma Lambert is collaborating on the Power of Place project.
