Kathryn Kolb

 

Atlanta-based photographer Kathryn Kolb is a treasure. Visit her website to see what I mean.

 

Here is an excerpt from her biography:

 

Kathryn Kolb was born in Indi­ana and grew up in the rural coun­try­side near Char­lottesville, Vir­ginia … Her pho­tographs have been widely pub­lished and have appeared in Smith­son­ian, Veranda, Rolling Stone, Nature Con­ser­vancy, Orion mag­a­zine and many oth­ers … Kolb‘s fine art series include black & white and color pho­tographs of land­scapes, trees and other plants from diverse nat­ural envi­ron­ments, often from the South­east­ern US. Her most recent work, mostly in color, explores abstract con­struc­tions that seem more akin to paint­ing than pho­tog­ra­phy. As pho­tog­ra­pher, Kolb stays true to the sim­plest form of her medium — all works are straight­for­ward, un-manipulated images.

 

Her book, Kathryn Kolb Pho­tographs, was released in Novem­ber 2008. Today Kathryn Kolb‘s fine art pho­tographs can be found in numer­ous pri­vate and insti­tu­tional col­lec­tions … Her inter­est in the envi­ron­ment goes beyond her visual aes­thetic …  Since the early nineties Kolb has worked to pre­serve and restore native for­est envi­ron­ments and care for urban trees and green­space … In 2009–2010, Kolb designed and launched a pho­tog­ra­phy cen­ter and print stu­dio in Serenbe Com­mu­nity in Pal­metto, GA, and Kathryn Kolb Pho­tographs won best of cat­e­gory “Nature Pho­tog­ra­phy” in the JBX Media Inter­na­tional Book Awards 2010.

 

Most recently, in addi­tion to con­tin­u­ing her fine art work, Kathryn host pho­tog­ra­phy work­shops in part­ner­ship with The Third Eye Pho­to­graphic Work­shops and Adven­tures (TheThirdEyePhoto.com), and serves as direc­tor and leads nat­u­ral­ist walks with the non-profit EcoAd­den­dum (Ecoaddendum.org).
