Emily Beaver is a self-taught photographer currently based in Michigan, U.S. Her work has been published in Mojo Magazine, Rolling Stone, 100 Club Stories (pub. 2018 by DITTO Press), Hamburger Eyes, and on album covers for Billy Childish and Third Man Records, among others. In 2016, Emily was listed as one of the “51 Instagram Photographers To Follow In The U.S.” (Tennessee) by TIME Magazine.
Originally from London, U.K., Emily relocated to the U.S. in 2010 while working for a record label (Domino Records). After 5 years in New York City, and 3 years in Nashville, she recently moved to Grand Rapids, Michigan, where she continues to shoot candid portraits and document events, in addition to working on personal projects.
In 2008, Emily curated the 100 Club Picture Show, a photo exhibition documenting the live shows that took place within London's legendary 100 Club over a 60 year period. This was a solo project and Emily spent 2 years researching, contacting photographers, editing, framing and hanging the show.
It is a permanent exhibition and still hangs in the club today. It features iconic live music photography by Jill Furmanovsky, Ray Stevenson, Elaine Constantine, Barry Plummer, Ross Halfin, Dean Chalkley, Terry Cryer and Walter Hanlon, and includes images of The Rolling Stones, Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, Jackie Wilson, Sex Pistols, The Clash and Oasis. The 100 Club Picture Show was featured widely in U.K. press, including Dazed and Confused, NME, Vice and i-D Magazine.
