Artist of the Month
The walls of Burlap and Bean are currently
featuring the work of Emily Geddes.
As a person and as a photographer, I really like to laugh and smile. I strive to portray this positive attitude with vivid colors and bright composition in my photography. My latest venture is moving the camera during the exposure, called Intentional Camera Movement (ICM). Itís a wonderful journey of study and experimentation and I continue to grow with each photograph.
It is important to find happiness in the ordinary. As a mother, I enjoy outdoor adventures with my three children, even if only in our own backyard garden. My photographs were captured just along the trail of ordinary life, literally in the blink of an eye. When I look at them, in the background I can hear the noise and giggles of childhood, feel the sunshine on my skin and smell the scents of our garden or the sea. Each image evokes a memory. Photography gives me a chance to slow down, breathe and take note of the million tiny miracles surrounding us every day.
After growing up across the country as a military child, Emily lives with her husband and three sons outside Philadelphia. She teaches pre-school art at Swarthmore Presbyterian Nursery Day School (SPNDS) and is presenting at the Delaware County Early Childhood Educators Associationís (DCECEA) 35th Annual Conference on Feb 28th.
