Situated in the documentary tradition, Katrin Koenning’s intimate photographs and sequences are made of the quotidian. Spaces clash, collide and come to be. Her fused geographies suggest a present that is puzzle-esque and multiplicit; always in conversation. With this, Koenning offers a way of seeing that is non-hierarchical, refusing to comply with a human-centric order of things. Instead the greater living world, the human and the animal occupy an equal space—connected rather than apart. In careful image-dialogues, she explores extended narrative possibilities and the currencies of the document. Through multilingual approaches to image-making Katrin seeks to reflect the complex times in which we live; imbuing her poetics experience both injury and tenderness.

So thrilled to have been invited by Greenpeace as one of only a handful of photographers to propose a new work for the biannual Greenpeace Photo Awards in collaboration with GEO Magazine, you can visit my 3 minute audio-visual proposal here. The main premise of the award is a fresh look at issues of environment. Please consider gifting me your vote to go into the run for the audience award! Your vote might help me secure the future of this work.

'The photographer makes masterful use of darkness as a communicative tool, and when light appears, it is as a scarce and distant gift, often emanating from an unseen clearing, or reflected by an animal or human form; it is not inherent. Koenning plays with scale (are we inches from the seabed, or many feet above a hillside?) and muddles the line of vision: a mountainside through a dirty window, a seascape through a cloth, pelicans in a cage. In Koenning’s hands, we are face to face with the calamity of the Earth, the things that are happening to its landscapes and its species; The Crossing is like dropping a pearl into murky water and watching it sink from view.' - Alice Zoo
