Artist Emily Hamilton Laux approaches the natural world from a different perspective, taking on the roles of anthropologist, botanist, researcher, and occasional set-designer, with the camera as her primary tool. Her recent work, now on view in the Westport Library’s South Gallery, examines and reframes ideas in biodiversity in the botanical world.

In Beauty Versus Beauty, plants are presented as still life’s in vintage jars with water to isolate species. The images address the co-mingled relationships of plants that grow in our backyards, along the edges of fields and parking lots, as well as flora that are cultivated for their beauty.

“Since childhood, I have looked for threads of connection between identity and place, perhaps because I have lived in very different regions of the world, as a child and as an adult,” said Emily.
