The start of something new — FlakPhoto Digest.
We’re developing a new project, a weekly newsletter focused on photography + visual culture recommendations carefully curated from across the Web. You know, the good stuff that deserves a closer look. FlakPhoto Digest is currently in closed beta and will be available to the public later this year. You can request an invite by subscribing below.
Emily Shur was born in New York City, at New York Hospital, to an auditorium full of nursing students. Her editorial clientele includes The New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, Time Magazine, Esquire, GQ, and Interview, among others. She has lectured about her work at New York University, School of Visual Arts in New York City, The Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Loyola Marymount University, and Brooks Institute. Her work has been selected for publication in American Photography 22, 24, 25 and 29. In 2005, Emily was selected as a winner in The Art Director’s Club Young Guns global competition. In 2009 and 2010, Emily was one of 100 photographers invited to participate in Review Santa Fe, and in 2010 her work was also included in Humble Art’s 31 Women in Art Photography exhibition. Emily’s work received an Honorable Mention for the Santa Fe Prize for Photography in 2011. Today, she lives in Los Angeles with her husband and their dog, The Baroness, in a 109 year-old house in Echo Park.
