All photographs were captured between 2009 and 2011. They were showcased in Kathrin’s solo exhibition Body & Soul in June 2011 in conjunction with the Auckland Festival of Photography. Three of these photographs were awarded honorable mention in the International Photography Awards Competition 2011 (IPA) in Los Angeles. The first image of Royal New Zealand Ballet dancers Medhi Angot and Qi Huang was exhibited in Los Angeles from 30 March – 3 May 13 as one of 25 winning work from the 2012 International Photography Awards’ annual single-image, themed competition, One Shot.

‘The body is a small boat in the face of music. Over the last three years Kathrin has photographed New Zealand’s leading dance companies including Black Grace and the Royal New Zealand Ballet. In this exhibition she resists the images of a storm at sea – exploring instead the pit of the wave, where muscle and music draw breath’ – Glenn Colquhoun

‘ …Kathrin has a lovely sensitivity, a sense of drama and a great eye for framing the action…’ – Mary Jane O’Reilly

From 2008 to 2011, Kathrin was the official photographer for the tempoº Dance Festival and regularly captures dress rehearsals for several NZ dance companies.

About

Kathrin May16 0090 edit4 350x 260 About

Kathrin is an award-winning photographer with a focus on documentary and storytelling. She has a passion and eye for unique stories and presents them in a way that intrigues and inspires the audience. She works on self-initiated projects energized by what inspires herself in the world that surrounds her – the topics are divers. Kathrin has exhibited her work in solo and group exhibitions in New Zealand and abroad. She enjoys collaborating with artist of other disciplines to intensify the story she is telling.

Her show ‘Full Moon Kingdom’ was one of the leading visual arts events of the Auckland Arts Festival 2016 and Kathrin’s exhibition FADE is traveling to be showcased in three galleries in 2016 / 2017.

‘I take photographs of stories that captivate and have meaning to me. Most of my photographs are grounded in people and moods. By being present in the moment and responding to what unfolds around me without preconception I try to capture images that are honest, empathic and real. That’s what I want to catch – reality in all its facets. Instead of setting up poses I wait for actuality by fading in the background. That’s when I feel I become one with my subject and am able to catch emotions and sentiments. That’s when I feel really excited.’
