Emily Graham has been making work in her hometown of Rugby, the project titled ‘Alspath’ looks at the intersection of the rural with industrial heritage. She is interested in how the countryside can be hidden in our more urban boroughs and districts. Emily has been exploring how people (particularly young people) interact with these green spaces and is working collaboratively with young people in the area and with Photography students at Rugby College.
Emily Graham is a photographer based in London. She gained her BA (Hons) in Photography at the University of Brighton, and has recently completed her MA in Photography at the University of West England.

Her work has been exhibited nationally & internationally, including at Format Festival 2019 as part of their thematic Forever/Now, and most recently at Pingyao International Photography Festival, China and in Profound Movement group exhibit at Houston Centre for Photography.
