Emma Phillips was born in Sorrento (Italy), in 1989. In 2010 she graduated in Photography from RMIT University in Melbourne, and moved to New York a year later, where she worked with Annie Leibovitz.

The images of Australian salt mines _x005F_x000D_ by young Melbourne photographer _x005F_x000D_ Emma Phillips are surprising for their simplicity bordering on abstraction. _x005F_x000D_ The huge mountains of bright, white salt conceal a landscape that is both human and alien, and that can only be placed in context by the structures or artificial machines that give them a graspable scale and a location on the map. The blue skies provide the backdrop for this dazzling natural space and make it more understandable. With these photographs Phillips wants to evoke the harsh landscapes of Australia’s interior.
