AboutEmily Allchurch is a British artist, living and working in London. She creates complex photographic light box images that closely reference old master paintings and prints. Using the original masters as a guide, she carefully reconstructs the scenes by digitally splicing photographs she takes of contemporary architecture and landscape, thus imbuing the
work with a modern social context. Tokyo Story is homage to Hiroshige's last great work, âOne Hundred Famous Views of
Edo' (1856-58). Transposing his distinctive techniques of abstraction, vivid colouring and composition into photography, Allchurch's recreations are a record of her own journey around Tokyo, revealing a gentle social narrative for the city today.
