Emily Hlavac Green is a photographer, artist and director from New Zealand who currently lives in Brooklyn, New York.
She creates visual stories motivated by a curiosity of place and character. As an advocate for ethical businesses Emily enjoys collaboration, empowering people through portraiture, and the intersections between food, fashion and energy.
With an enthusiasm for travel she has helped build projects to unearth cultural discussions – from a short stint living in the Pacific Islands shooting a renewable solar documentary project, to a five-year long international fashion project shot between New Zealand and China, and recently travelled to Peru on assignment with Photographers Without Borders.
She spent two years in-house as Lead Photographer and Designer for New Zealand’s leading food personality, Annabel Langbein; a role which encompassed shoot production through to art direction and brand ideation in food and lifestyle.
Emily enjoys collecting plants, rekindling found objects and living out of a suitcase.
