Katherine Schmidt's photographic journey began with a background in fine arts with an emphasis on figure drawing. She began documenting her first-born child on film and thus discovered her fascination with photographic image making.
"My photographs express the thoughts that I cannot convey with words."
- Katherine Schmidt
"When people talk about my personal work the same comments come up time and time again... mysterious, unrevealing, curiosity, intimate and yet distant... I work with models to convey the ideas and thoughts that I have and I photograph my family and the environment that is a part of our world and our experiences."
