Katrina is an artist based in London

Her research fixates on questioning the representation of photography, and it’s meaning as object and collective form. She is interested in consumption, and making connections between food and images; their digestion and representation, source and distribution, and entwining as daily process.

Katrina’s work manifests through her making process, whether it’s utilising found or expired paper stocks, experimenting in the darkroom, hand retouching, facilitating chemigrams, or creating pinhole cameras (and placing them covertly in public).
Found material is often her starting point, and can range from objects, X-rays, 16mm film and food waste, to discarded photographic materials and negatives found at commercial labs in London.

After finishing an MFA at Goldsmiths in London, 2020, she has since then, co-founded the project space Equivalentbehaviour in North London with Storquestudios, and has exhibited Internationally. Katrina is a Project Manager of the London Alternative Photography Collective.
