Emme Rovins (b. 1997, Southern New Jersey) is a photographer currently based in Boston, Massachusetts completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at Lesley Art + Design. Rovins’s reverence for the natural world alongside her progressively intricate understanding of the relationship between sexuality and identity culminates in her photographic practice. Weaving aspects of the landscape into visual metaphors, Rovins negotiates her relationship to the land in order to gain a deeper understanding of her own sexuality. She considers the lineage of landscape photography throughout the history of the medium, particularly due to its male domination, as she ritualizes the act of a woman exploring the woods under the cover of darkness.
