Kathryn Wilson

Artist Statement Submitted 2014

The Habitat series of digital photographs that explore the lives and personalities of my sitters through elaborate orchestrations of the possessions and spaces that constitute their everyday environment. Employing centuries-old compositional devices, my theatrically conceived portraits transcend the quotidian familiarity of the personal belongings and spaces they depict, casting my subjects as both intimately vulnerable yet heroic. Through my creative direction, I showcase my subjects’ lives in a way I feel tells the story of who they are and how they want to be seen.
