Wit speaks with photographer Emma Ressel about her photography practice and new solo exhibition Trouble in the Garden at Colorspace Labs in the Kensington neighborhood of North Philly. In this 31-minute First Friday conversation, Emma shares how her work spins together stories influenced by folklore, food literature, religious iconography, and interpretations of Dutch still life paintings. Using imagery that draws from feelings of repulsion and ecstasy associated with all things edible, Emma gives food the space to tell its own story to each viewer. If you’re in North Philadelphia tonight, stop by Colorspace Labs at 1714 North Mascher Street at 6pm to witness Trouble in the Garden!
