On First Friday (June 7th), Indigo Creek Outfitters will premiere a month-long photo display by Emily Berlant (Photos Through Purple Frames)at the Indigo Creek rafting center located at 130 A St, #2B in Ashland, Oregon. Emily has been taking photos for as long as she can remember but started putting professional focus on photography at the beginning of this year.
Growing up in Southern Oregon with highly adventurous parents and traveling extensively throughout her childhood, Emily always found inspiration in the brief moments that can only be contained in a photo. She remembers sitting in her living room as a child clicking through slides of her parents’ days on the river in the 70’s and playing with her father’s Canon A-1. Not much of a portrait photographer, Emily focuses more on scenery and nonhuman objects.
Emily spent 2012 touring with reggae band ‘SYNRGY’ across fifteen states and spent that time adamantly working on her photo portfolio. Displayed photos, most shot with a Canon 60D with 18-200mm lens, will cover subjects ranging from rivers in Oregon to chickens in Wisconsin.
