We come to understand the world through fragments, eventually reinforcing the connections to the point where the cumulative experience becomes what we think we know. Sometimes it is the things we encounter every day that are the hardest to really see, to really comprehend. One day, I watched the mountain more intensely. I photographed it every hour from sunrise to sunset, seeking to articulate my relationship to the landscape that surrounds me. In the following weeks, I found myself thinking about the mountain constantly. I would see its lines and contours in unexpected moments. I began to reconstruct, abstract and play with the idea of what my perception of the mountain was and what meaning it might hold. The repeated process of breaking, remaking, rephotographing formed a silent dialogue between us. My fascination, my obsession, leading me to ask what it is like to be another. Could my picturing of the mountain bring me closer to it? The work became a meditation on the fragmented form and idea of the mountain that I see from my home. I carry it with me, imprinted like the faces of my loved ones.

Emma Godfrey Pigott (b. 1979, UK) is a Swiss-based visual artist and writer living in the Alps. She is currently studying a Master of Fine Arts at the University of South Wales studying under Lisa Barnard and Mark Durden. Prior to this she was self-taught and one of the founding members of Natasha Caruana’s ‘Work Show Grow’ artist education platform. She was a finalist in the Royal Photographic Society (RPS) International Photography Exhibition 2019 and won an Honourable Mention in the 14th Julia Margaret Cameron Awards. Her work has been exhibited at FotoNostrom Barcelona, RPS House Bristol and at the 2023 Bienal de Foto do Porto Portugal. Her writing has been published on the RPS Hundred Heroines blog. The landscape is a key aspect in Emma’s practice: for her it becomes a character and stage upon which to explore the experience of being in the world. Her research focuses on liminality and New Materialism as a paradigm for understanding the changes that are happening in our world especially due to the climate crisis. Working across a range of lens-based media and alternative processes, she plays with the capture and surface of the photograph, allowing chance and generative, collaborative strategies to influence the outcome. She is interested in how exhibition spaces can affect visual meaning and aspires to work with installation and sculpture in the presentation of her work.
