Publisher's Description

Selected as Book of the Week by Christian Michael Filardo

Taking her cue from late Italian photographer Luigi Ghirri and his 1991 essay A light on the wall, Emma Phillips’ new body of work adopts a mode of investigation that perpetuates this notion of the camera as conjurer. At once untethered, methodical and speculative in tenor, the Melbourne photographer’s works describe a claustrophobic, disorientating and mildly ominous space; they read as vignettes or sketches, adrift between the schisms of reality and the illusory, authenticity and artifice. Slowly, quietly, they unfold and surprise and reveal. In this collection of images, she describes various planes of representation, photographs the photographed and the painted and complicates the landscape and the architectural.
