Emma Powell featured on

Embracing the hands on nature of the cyanotype, Emma Powell creates beautiful dreamlike images inspired by her own insomnia. In her interview with Wired for their website she says that, “The fact that everybody can make a picture makes people more interested in photography, but when you get into alternative processes where you’re making a one-of-a-kind object and the original object is art, there’s a significance of that single image that doesn’t have a replica.” Her work is a beautiful example of embracing a traditional alternative photographic process in a contemporary way, following in the rich tradition of Rochester's photographic community and reminiscent of the work of Bea Nettles, the first female faculty member in RIT's School of Photographic Arts and Sciences.
