Summary

Summary

An "aesthetic tight-rope walk with the traditional resources of photography through the various places created by art and fashion photography". -- Katrin Thomas, about her work.

The young New York photographer Katrin Thomas, recipient of the prestigious Otto-Steinert-Preis of the Deutsche Gesellschaft fur Photographic in 1998, has become a shooting star in the international photo scene. Moving adeptly between the opposing poles of fashion and art photography, she employs a technique of staged improvisation in dealing with existing aesthetic concepts, exposing the familiar cliches of omnipresent media with a fine sense of irony. Her photos cannot be overlooked. They draw attention to themselves yet do not impose with torrents of color or experimental arrangements. Instead, they create the impression that the photographer is telling a story, a mysterious narrative related in quiet tones, based upon a screenplay.
