New York based London native Emily Hope, initially began her career in fashion as a model when she was scouted at age 15 where she was cast in a Burberry campaign by Testino, and also graced the pages of Vogue, Dazed, Muse and i-D. Upon moving to New York, Hope assisted New York based artist and fashion photographer Collier Schorr, where she honed her skills working alongside Schorr on magazine editorials, and shoots with notable personalities.
In a short period of time Hope has made a name for herself, thanks to her idiosyncratic fashion editorials and portraits. Influenced by photographers from William Eggleston, Paolo Roversi to Peter Lindbergh, she has in turn developed an aesthetic that is instantly recognisable for its realism and measured composition.
Hope counts French Elle, Elle Mexico, Harpers Bazaar UAE, Gratzia, Vanity Fair Italy, Vogue Mexico, Stella Magazine, Red, Financial Times, Sunday Times Style, iD, ES, Art Forum, NyLon amongst others as Rika, and Garage Magazine. With her commercial clients ranging from Diesel, 55DSL, R13 and most recently Levi's, Chanel and Volvo. Most recent New York Gallery shows include Martos gallery in Chelsea.
