A conceptual model is developed for the processes of photon emission and absorption. While the emission of light is well known in terms of quantum changes in energy levels of an electron, the fundamental physical processes are incompletely understood. How exactly does the photon emerge from the electron? How is light absorbed by matter? These foundational conceptual questions are the focus of this paper. We show that it is possible to develop new insights into this problem, based on the cordus model, which is a non-local hidden-variable solution. We start by predicting the structures of the photon and electron, both the internal geometric sub-structures, and their discrete fields. The model predicts that there are different mechanisms for the fields of the photon and electron, and uses this to explain the characteristics of the evanescent and electric fields. We then show how the bonding constraints arise on the electron, and how these require the electron to emit its excess energy. The process whereby a photon is created and separated out of the electron is identified. Photon emission and absorption thus result from an interaction between the discrete field elements and the internal structures. Emission is thus an escapement mechanism whereby matter particules that are over-prescribed in position can get rid of that energy.
