Katia’s abstract photography is mostly studio-based & involves constructions with ‘neutral’ materials such as paper, card & glass. Most of the work in this exhibition was created during the lockdown, some on a window sill in her studio, others exploring movement with artificial light.Born in England in 1964, Katia studied Anthropology at St Andrew’s University then spent most of the 1980’s in South America. In 1990 she joined the Linhart’s Foundation. Her interest in abstract photography began after seeing the work of Funke & Rossler & she set up her first darkroom in Pocernice. Returning to England in 1996 she trained through the Royal Photographic Society & with a young family to support, she started her own photography business, building up her abstract portfolio in her free time.
