Emily Allen was born in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania in 1999. She completed her BA in photography at Bard College in May of 2022, and currently lives and works outside of Philadelphia. Emily's work has been described as romantic, quiet, atmospheric, and intimate. Her practice involves self portraiture, and she is always experimenting with new techniques in the camera and in the darkroom as she explores herself and the world around her. In addition to her photographic work, Emily studied classics and medieval studies at Bard. She is a violinist, painter, and nature enthusiast who keeps an extensive indoor houseplant garden. Most recently, she completed an Ancient Greek Intensive at the Latin/Greek Institute in New York City.
