Emily Belz is a photographer and educator based in Cambridge, MA. Her work focuses on domestic still lifes, and reveals a strong affinity for light, space, and color. Belz has exhibited her photographs both regionally and nationally at venues including the Center for Fine Art Photography; the Griffin Museum of Photography; and the Danforth Museum. She was the recipient of a 2014 artist grant from the Cambridge Arts Council, a 2015 Critical Mass Finalist, and was awarded the Manoog Family artist residency in 2018. In 2019 Belz will have solo exhibits at Gallery Kayafas and the Danforth Museum.

When not making photographs she can be found sailing with her husband and young son, and chasing the light.
