Kathryn Cook

Born in 1978 in the USA, Kathryn Cook nowadays lives in London.

Her work is currently published (The New Yorker, The New York Times, Time, Stern, Le Monde 2, The Independent) and received many aknowledgments as the Inge Morath Award (2008), the Aftermath Project Grant (2008), the Enzo Baldoni Award (2008), the Alexia Foundation Grant (2012). She took advantage of the program Ateliers de L’Euroméditerranée (Marsiglia-Provenza 2013) to complete the work about Armenians.

Her photographs represent the topography, the memory, the oblivion and they subtly show how the perception of a landscape may change when one knows what happened in that place. In these images there’s much more than a simple documentation of the facts, they really transmit the emotional weight of History.
