"...Ressel’s work is filled with ‘pretty excellences,’ but it is backed by a wry malevolence and a deceptive wit. In fact, the beauty of these compositions, filled with a sense of light and air and succulent color that belongs only to photography, endows them with the fascination of the Trojan Horse: it’s the gift that we happily accept on first sight, only to discover that we’ve let in something just a little bit nasty..." 
Laurie Dahlberg

"...Like so many great photographers, Emma Ressel sees the world differently and in conceiving her work she has been able to project onto familiar things a new and rich imagery. Looking at her photographs is like trying a new dish, something with a flavor we might never have tasted before..." 
Luca Nostri & Francesco Neri
