Emily Strother's Headshot Option 1.jpg
emily strother

Photographer, musician, abstract surrealist — both behind and in front of the camera. Emily is an expert at being a beginner. Her practice is one of continual experimentation and adaptation. She has become unapologetically authentic. She is in awe of any form of self-expression while she's finding hers. Forever a student.
