What started as taking snapshots to capture memories of special occasions, family gatherings, and the places where she and her family traveled became an obsession.
Her passion evolved into a desire to capture the world in slices of time. The underlying goal of each image is to reflect the world’s incongruities as well as what joins us together as human beings. Every trip reveals new insights with every photo becoming a self-portrait reflecting how she sees the world.
Spending time getting close to her subjects in their own environment has allowed for honest, deeply personal, and many, times very powerfully emotional images. Catherine’s travels have taken her to many places including Antarctica, Uganda, Sri Lanka, Spain, Germany, Russia, and Mongolia. Several recent trips to Cuba have left a lasting impression on Catherine reflected in a substantial volume of work.
When not traveling Catherine splits her time between Madison, WI, and Steamboat Springs, CO.
