Kathia Vertiz
Photographer

Kathia Vertiz (1998) is a Mexican visual artist and photographer based in Mexico City.

She has developed as a self-taught photographer since her beginnings in her early teenage years and for the last six years her work has been more focused on the use of analog photography and its derived techniques.

Her work addresses topics such as the relationship and interaction of oneself with reality, and how the perception of reality is always changing and affected by the emotions and the varying intensity on how we experience certain moments in life, how our memories are always being affected by our thoughts and emotions, and can become something blurry or clear.

She is interested in portraying what it is like to be a neurodivergent woman in a world that, even when you wake up every day in the same place, continues to seem unfamiliar with moments that feel like fragments of a dream.

Her work also stands out for the use of color, calling attention to the protagonist of the images, providing more depth to the mood of the scenarios and situations she presents.

Within the creation of her images, she seeks to redefine various situations about the complexity of existing and being alive, such as happiness, pain, the inevitable loneliness, disgust, nostalgia, fear, anxiety, ecstasy, and love.

She has also worked as a freelance photographer for bands and for fashion editorials.
