"I seek to capture the beauty in the universality, even mundanity within modern human life and the human built environment in an effort to elevate disregarded settings and gestures to greatness.
Expanding the liminal spaces and experiences with minimally processed photographs so as to invite an elastic sense of knowing has always been exciting and challenging.
Undertaking definitive series supports my immersion in totality - physically and emotionally, allowing an unearthing of the nuanced divergences and parallelisms."
Catherine has made Phoenix, Arizona her home since 2007.
Her photographs are purely digital, blending the immediacy digital offers with the ability to capture manually. Printed Digital C's are available for sale upon request. Sony a7 : Zeiss 1.8/55mm, Zeiss 2.8/18mm, Sony 28-70mm. Please inquire.
