Meditation on Photography
Katharine White '10 on her passion for photography.
As with “Christine,” pictured here, Katharine photographs primarily women in carefully contrived costumes, makeup, hairstyles, and settings. She says the approach has a paradoxical effect. “Initially, it seems I’m hiding who they really are, but it’s incredible how much undiluted self shines through when they get in front of the camera,” Katharine explains. “Everything I do in preparation for the photo acts, I think, as a sort of counter-intuitive excuse for the girls to be themselves.”
