Emma Charles

Emma Charles

Through photographs and videos both crisp and evocative, Emma Charles goes beneath the urban veneer to uncover the hidden infrastructure within our technologically driven modern life. She is particularly interested in the places where opposites collide. In her film, Fragments on Machines (2013), for example, she takes viewers behind Verizon’s New York headquarters, where her camera ranges over thickly bundled fiber-optic cables and racks of servers, revealing the overtly physical means by which our virtual reality is delivered. She has also highlighted the nightshift workers who clean up after traders in London’s houses of finance in After the Bell (2009). By revealing these unseen spaces and people, Charles aims to give us a more nuanced, and perhaps sympathetic, understanding of how modern life is structured.
