Emily Korman began drawing and painting as a child, but her true passion is photography. Korman's color photographs are cinematic in feel. Through focusing on light and the lack there of, she creates surreal, sometimes disturbing tableaux in which she often plays the primary character. In 2009 she received her bachelor of fine arts in photography from the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan, where she was honored with the Rhodes Family Award for Outstanding Achievement in Photography. She was selected to participate in SVA's 2009 Mentor program and exhibit, and was fortunate to be mentored by American photographer Gregory Crewdson. Her work has been auctioned and exhibited in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
