Like most photographers, I started using my camera to capture scenes: nature and slices of everyday life that I found beautiful.  As I evolved, I started to capture the unconventional or unnoticed elements and focus on them, creating a photograph that would challenge the viewer’s perception of the world around them.  Now I create the image I want to capture in my head; I then use live models and physical multimedia techniques to bring it to reality in a photograph that aims to challenge and intrigue the viewer on many levels.  My latest work does this with a figurative element, using the body as the canvas and light as the paintbrush.

“Most artists struggle their whole lives to create something new, something that makes them stand out, and never achieve that goal.  With his latest series of work, Emrich has achieved just that, a new take on the photography genre that could cement his place in art history.”
Vincent Harrison, Castle Fitzjohns Gallery, New York City

“Some of the most creative and imaginative photographs.”
Henry Buhl (prominent photography collector and philanthropist)

"This marriage of the corporeal with timeless and sublime works of art allows the viewer to see and understand these paintings, patterns, and garments in a completely new way. These designs and compositions have a human core."         Basic Magazine, Beverly Hills, California
