Katie Condon, who recently updated her photography portfolio, is good at storytelling. Pairing precise technical skills with an eye for the right shot, Katie makes a Lousiana dojo or a Midwestern construction site feel familiar. It’s very satisfying, then, that Katie relinquishes control in her personal series, “Other Than Myself”.
Official series statement:
Photographs made in and around the circumference of a graveyard and buried. Canister of latent film dug up and tampered with by someone/thing other than myself. This encounter informed subsequent exposures, which were transferred, buried, and contact printed.
A good portion of Katie’s personal work deals with death and loss, and I appreciate the parallels between the cemetery as subject and the loss of control over the final image. Results here (turn up the brightness on your screen for greater detail):
