11.45-12.45 Emily Hancock http://emilyhancock.co.uk
A Fellow of the BIPP, Emily has spent many years experimenting with artistic mediums, but always gravitates back to photography as the catalyst and foundation of her work. With an ability to capture a millisecond of our history that would otherwise be missed, and immortalising it with her camera, Emily has successfully fused art with running a commercially sustainable business, based in the New Forest and surrounded by wild horses that inspire her work. She is evidence that you can work in an arena that fulfils you  on a personal level and create a livelihood from.
"Nature’s influence impacts the way I work and the images I produce, bringing me a sense of freedom and curiosity that I use to create new work."
"My pieces are inspired by the connection I have with horses. Just like people, there are many layers to a horse’s personality, and it takes time to uncover each one. Slowly but surely, with time and after building trust, the horse will allow you to see deeper into its soul. I am fascinated by the different aspects of each horse’s personality, and how my relationship with each horse that I photograph deepens and evolves. I express these layers in my work, using multiple layers of photographs and mixed media techniques – such as encaustic wax – to create images that have depth and texture. The equine species has evolved tremendously over the past 55 million years, becoming a more refined, robust version of themselves. I use this concept to uncover new elements of their personalities and express them in my work."
