Australian-born Emma Summerton graduated from the National Art School in Sydney, where she studied Fine Arts, majoring in photography. After graduating, Emma went to work as a photographic assistant for 6 years. She moved to London in 1998, where she worked as an assistant to artist Fiona Banner. Occasionally she would collaborate with Fiona on photographic projects including shooting many images for Banner's first book released in 2003. Emma has since established herself as one of the most talented photographers to emerge in the mid 2000's. Her in-depth technical knowledge coupled with her eye for detail and love for fashion have made her images not only unique but very distinctive, setting her apart from other photographers working in the industry today.
