Katie has been analyzing her relationship to photography over it’s span of 18 years as well as society’s relationship to it for the past century and a half.  Life becomes more interesting through the lens of a camera. Katie also realized this incessant need to photograph everything, is not just her obsession, it is a global obsession.

Photography is a universal language. It’s accessibility allows us to shoot and consume images at a rapid pace.  The camera has given us the ability to publicly explore our own voyeurism and narcissism.   The constant evolution of the medium is exciting; yet image consumption is changing how we experience physical reality.
