Katie Shapiro
Photographer

Katie Shapiro’s work centers on an attentiveness to the details that abound in her everyday life, and revolves around the people and experiences that make up her daily world. Her portrait practice aims to provoke emotions, capture an honest gesture, and show beauty that she sees within her subjects. “I strive to capture my subjects in moments of stillness and contemplation – sometimes at ease and other times stuck in their own worlds. It is these moments I am most drawn to in portraiture, in part because of the reflective pause that mirrors the stasis of photography, as well as the mystery and ambiguity of people’s internal worlds.” She was recently included in Resource Magazine’s 10 best 10 contest and is a grand prize winner from the London Photographic Association.
