Below, an article by D-Photo reviewing Emma's work after her speech at the Image Nation Photographic Conference 2014


Bass takes us on a journey of her life through photography.  After a time in London and a career in nursing, she attended Carrington Polytech, where she explored the process of layering images in art projects.  This technique of overlaying shpaes, textures, and colours has emerged at different stages of her career, including shots in a junk yard, on human bodies, and later, in her project Bloom, with flowers, rocks, and leaves over-layered onto images of pregnant women.
She injects fun into her editorial shoots capturing celebrities, interiors, and weddings.  "I like to bring out the strength of women when photographing" she remarks.
Bass is currently exhibiting work from her Imperfect Project - humble flowers and plants with failings, lit and composed simply yet, in true Emma Bass style, elegantly.
Top tip:  if you have an idea, act on it right away.
