Esméralda Emanuela is a young photographer and visual artist based in The Netherlands.

Esméralda’s work includes subjects that enter into a relationship with the cosmos. Visually she searches for objects and locations that are considered strange to her. Playing with the ambiguity of the visual language incites us to reconsider everyday objects, in which Esméralda effectively tries to create circumstances in which the familiar seems unfamiliar. She wants to enter into a dialogue between the viewer and the images. Her view of the works usually includes a surrealist or abstract idea that she elaborates in different disciplines.
