who is she?
Hello! My name is Katey. I can identify myself in a myriad of ways - photographer, feminist, Oregonian, vegan, Enneagram 4w5 - and while all of these identifiers are true and good and important to me, I don’t think any piece of my identity would be complete without coming back to the core of “human.” It seems obvious, but bear with me. Everything I do and everything I make, whether it’s photographs, art, food, or friends, draws me back into being human; the one thing that we all share.
In college, I majored in anthropology and journalism. I share this not to brag about my student debt, but because I think the combination of anthropology - slow, methodical observation of societies and cultures - and journalism - high-intensity documentation of life as it happens - is the perfect space for me to inhabit in both my life and my art.
I am a documentarian as much as I am an artist. I am drawn to natural light, to contrasts, to pieces of life, important or not, that might otherwise go unnoticed. I believe that humanity should be captured as it is. I believe that people’s stories should be told. And I believe that this is the most powerful way to inspire other humans to make a change in themselves and, ultimately, in the world. Yes, I want to change the world. Who doesn’t?
