Michigan photographer Emily J. Gómez will share her work in New Cyanotype, explaining how and why she uses this handmade blueprint process. Through the series Unearthed, she investigates places where Native American towns in the Southeast and Midwest once prospered and considers what they have become. Her latest series, titled Cumberland Island: Land, Water, Wind, and Light, is a collaboration with artists Christa Bowden and Ernesto R. Gómez. Her focus for the project is on the Georgia barrier island’s Native American, African American, and Carnegie family histories, and the island’s impending loss due to rising sea levels.

Gómez earned a BA in Fine Arts Photography from Loyola University Chicago in 1998, and an MFA with Distinction in Photography from the University of Georgia in 2006. Her work has been exhibited widely and is in the permanent collection of the Zuckerman Museum of Art in Kennesaw, Georgia.
