PPF is proud to announce Katharine T Jacobs will be our featured speaker for our June meeting
Katharine T. Jacobs is a large format film photographer working in silver gelatin and alternative processes. Her work is conceptual and deals with femininity, chronic illness and living with a disability. She uses the human form to communicate emotions and sensations that are deeply personal while also trying to create beautiful images that viewers can appreciate on both an aesthetic and visceral level.
Katharine is a graduate of Oregon College of Art and Craft. Originally from the rural foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Katharine began her education at California College of the Arts in Oakland, California. There she learned to shoot with a large format camera and discovered Polaroid type 55 film. In 2007 she moved to Portland, purchased her own 4×5 camera and started photographing friends, family and countless strangers. Her focus in street photography and large format shooting would inspire her journey across the United States and the production of her largest body of work to date; American Strangers.
