Emma Locke’s imagery is concerned with the subtle changes to our facial features caused by our closest relationships. Her work is inspired by current studies into this subject as well as notions of genetic engineering and obsession with youthful looks. This is explored using photography and editing techniques in order to question the assumptions made about a photographic portrait. The underlying concepts to her large scale photographs are representations of identity, ideas of the self and questions whether we can grow increasingly similar to another person.
