Emily Knecht for Loeffler Randall
March 30, 2016
PHOTOGRAPHER EMILY KNECHT FINDS CONSTANT INSPIRATION IN EXPLORING WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A WOMAN. LR LOVES HER CREATIVE, UNIQUE POINT OF VIEW AND HER WILLINGNESS TO PUSH THE ENVELOPE.
“Taking photographs is a discovery: not in manipulating what’s there, but bringing out what’s not seen.”
“I read a lot. I like getting into other people’s worlds and into their heads. This makes me want to get into my subjects’ heads. I love opening people up, watching them become whole.
My advice for aspiring photographers is to just shoot everyday. Put your stuff out in the world. Don’t wait until you’re ‘good enough.'”
“It’s so important to find inspiration everywhere, not just in your medium. I love Loeffler Randall’s simple designs.
My personal style changes. I like simplicity, but sometimes I want to go a little crazy. You have to be open to experimentation.”
WE ASKED EMILY TO INTERPRET OUR BRAND ETHOS IN HER OWN VISUAL LANGUAGE. HER DIPTYCH ON “BEST KEPT SECRETS” BOTH CONCEALS AND REVEALS:
“A lot of images we see in advertisement and art and television and film are shot for men and by men. My photos are about seeing the women fully. A lot of photography is just bodies. I want the heart and soul.
I’ve started to connect more to being a woman, and what that means. My newest obsessions are pregnancy and motherhood. My friends are starting to become mothers right now and documenting those moments is really special for me.”
As told by Loeffler Randal.
