2018 Finalists

Katrin KOENNING

Artist statement: Based in still and moving images, much of my work explores our physical and emotional connection to place, and notions of belonging and dislocation. I often photograph the people in immediacy to me; my husband, my family and my friends. One of my central modes of making is by returning to things – a mountain, a staircase or a tree down the road. This return functions as a nearing-of-self to things, and a drawing closer. I made this image of my close friend Maxine earlier this year, as she navigates through a time of great pain and strength in her life.
