One To Watch: Jennifer Emerling The Californian photographer finds her inspiration along America’s backroads. Published May 15, 2010 12:09 AM Galleries Emerling captured this image in the wetlands of Juneau, Alaska, where she spends summers teaching travelers about both nature and photography. SHARE To capture the dazzling atmosphere of this dimly lit scene, Emerling took advantage of another photographer shooting with a flash on the opposite side of an aerialist in the performance group Lucent Dossier. The image is part of her Night Crawlers series, an exploration of nightclubs across the country. During other seasons, she heads to Leadville, Colorado, exploring life in a small Western town. For this shot, she tagged along on a coyote-hunting trip. MORE TO READ RELATED The best wildlife photography of 2021 The 2021 Wildlife Photographer of the Year awards have been announced.
