Emily Shornick is an art director, producer and photography editor.  In January 2016 she joined the digital team at Tory Burch, where she art directs on-figure photography for accessories and handbags.  

She most recently worked as the inaugural photo editor at New York Magazine’s fashion and women's interest brand, The Cut.  She was integral to the site's 2012 relaunch from fashion blog to stand-alone multi-vertical women’s interest site, defining The Cut's visual identity and building a roster of photographers across the globe.  Traffic increased 600% over her four-year tenure, and the print magazine created a six-page photo-driven Cut section in 2014 in response to its success.

Shornick graduated from Bard College and cut her teeth on internships at the International Center of Photography and Spin Magazine.  After a stint overseeing 450+ photographers nationwide for a celebrity photo wire, she returned to editorial, freelancing for clients such as Conde Nast and b2b publisher American Lawyer Media. 

Her work has been honored in American Photography, the PDN Photo Annual and by the Society of Publication Designers.  Shornick is a frequent photography contest judge, most recently serving on the jury of American Photography 32. She has written for PDN and Rangefinder and spoken across the country on strategies for emerging photographers.  Shornick serves on the national board of the American Society of Picture Professionals, as well as its New York chapter.  She recently edited her first art book project -- Miska Draskoczy's forthcoming Gowanus Wild, due spring 2016.  She resides in New York.
