Emily is an independent photographer, educator, and curator based in Lincoln, MA. Her photographs focus on domestic still lifes, telling stories through the traces, objects, and slants of light that have been left behind. Emily has exhibited her photographs widely in both solo and group exhibitions at venues including the Griffin Museum of Photography, the Center for Fine Art Photography, the Danforth Museum, and the Newport Art Museum. She is represented by Gallery Kayafas in Boston.

She teaches classes and workshops at the Griffin Museum of Photography (Winchester, MA) and the deCordova Museum (Lincoln, MA), and is on the faculty at Lasell University (Newton, MA). Emily works privately with artists as a mentor, and specializes in reviewing and sequencing portfolios.
With 20+ years in the art world, Belz brings this experience to her role as juror for photography competitions, and as a reviewer for regional portfolio reviews. She enjoys curating exhibitions in collaboration with emerging artists in the Boston area.
