latest commission: Davenport, IA

Recently I received a commission to make a collection of photos to commemorate someone’s time in the city of Davenport, Iowa. Pictures of downtown Davenport have been done.. a lot. However, I’ve never actually photographed the area myself, so I was eager to find a way to take an extensively photographed area and make the pictures my own. For my first efforts and a short window of time to come up with a finished project, I am pleased with how they turned out.


The requirement was black and white images.

My work has been inspired by where I come from- a small community in which my childhood fort was a hog pen on my grandparents' farm- and what I hold dearest in my heart above all- my faith.

  1. Not only is your work incredible, Emmilou, your “work ethic” was astounding! I believe you captured these photos in 24 hours, sent them to me, and thanks to Evergreen Artworks, they were framed and ready to wrap as a farewell gift! Everyone who has seen them has loved them! Thank you so much for your above and beyond help!
