Kat Green: California Portraits
Die Londoner Fotografin Kat Green hat für wyme ein paar ihrer schönsten Porträtaufnahmen zusammengestellt.
Hier stellt sie sich selbst vor:
I was born in the suburbs of South London and moved to East London 9 years ago. I’m not sure when I first became interested in photography but I loved art in school and had lots of ideas but I was never good at drawing. Photography was an easier way for me to be creative. When I was younger my parents were always taking photos on their Pentax S1A and my mum would put together albums. Looking through these albums was and still is one of my favourite things to do. I love the nostalgia photos evoke and I think that’s why I became so passionate about capturing everything around me.
People have always been the subject of my photos and over the years I have developed my skills as a portrait photographer. I mainly try and use natural light and prefer shooting outdoors as opposed to shooting in a studio. People and light are what inspire my best photos.
I studied photography before the transition from film to digital and only in the past 2 years moved over to shooting digital. I still favour film if I can choose and prefer the way I shoot when using it. There is something about the consideration, planning and authenticity of the process which makes shooting film far more exciting and generally gives more interesting results.
East London is a good place to be working as a photographer, it’s a great creative community to be a part of and there’s lots of competition to keep you on your toes. However, travelling is when I feel most inspired to take photos and it’s what I hope to do more of in the future.
