About

Sydney-based photographer Emma Rowan‐Kelly has a passion to capture all aspects of life on earth.

Through her photography Emma seeks out moments that create a connection between her subject and the viewer, with an aim of encouraging empathy for the environment and for all those that share it.

Emma has journeyed to over 85 countries and territories during the past 15 years, including the high Arctic, Sub‐Antarctic, Iran, Bhutan, Colombia, Tibet, Galapagos Islands, Cambodia, Cuba & Nepal – locations that attract the curious explorer, fascinated by the paths less travelled.

Her best‐selling exhibition in 2011 “Innocent Arctic” was sponsored by National Geographic / Lindblad Expeditions and Wentworth Travel with 35% of profits donated to WWF Adopt a Polar Bear program. Emma has both a fine arts and travel professional background and is a former student of both the Sydney Institute of Photography and the National Art School.

She is arranging and leading photography tours to Antarctica, the Arctic and the Galapagos Islands as well as other destinations in collaboration with Darren Jew.

Emma is also working on her next solo exhibition, which will feature Daguerreotypes, the oldest form of photography.
