The re-appropriation of images from a wide array of sources is something that has been greatly explored by photographers over recent years. Emily Smith's work questions how the medium of photography is changing as a result of this, raising concerns about whether one method is more effective than another. Inspired by the rapid growth of the internet and changing technologies, Emily's most recent project utilises imagery from Google Street View in order to explore representations of place. The work also incorporates a more traditional photographic element, making use of film to produce a personal response to each location and inviting the viewer to consider whether this technique can in fact create a more realistic interpretation of a particular space.
