Christophe Guye Galerie is very pleased to announce the representation of Emma Summerton (*1970, Australia).
Emma Summerton graduated from the National Art School in Sydney, where she studied fine arts majoring in Photography. Summerton moved to London in 1998, where she worked as an assistant to artist Fiona Banner while starting her career as a photographer.
Emma Summerton’s first published fashion editorial was a Self Portrait Polaroid story shot for Dazed & Confused in 2005. Since then Summerton has 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.
Summerton’s Editorial Clients include: Italian, British, American, German, Australian, Spanish, Japanese and Chinese Vogue’s, i-D, Self Service, Dazed & Confused, The Last magazine,10 and Big Magazine. Her works have already been shown at the ArtisTree in Hong Kong at the exhibition ‘Beyond Fashion’ curated by Nathalie Herschdorfer together with Paolo Roversi, Jürgen Teller and Bruce Weber, among others, and at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London at the ‘Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams’ exhibition. Next May she will be on view together with Peter Lindbergh and Nick Knight, among others, at the National Museum of Scotland in the exhibition ‘Body Beautiful’.
A selection of Emma Summerton’s works will be shown for the first time at Photo London in May 2019.
