Emily J. Gómez earned her B.A. in Fine Arts/Photography from Loyola University Chicago in 1998 and her M.F.A. with Distinction from the University of Georgia in 2006. Her large format photographs document former Indian town sites throughout the Southeastern and Midwestern United States. Through her work, she questions the foundation on which America was built and how we choose to memorialize or ignore our nation's past. She is an adopted member of the Santee Indian Nation of South Carolina and a Professor of Art at Georgia College in Milledgeville, Georgia.
