KATE WOODMAN ISSUE NO. 2
Born in Darmstadt, Germany, Kate Woodman was brought up in Connecticut and currently calls Portland, Oregon home. A structural preservation engineer by training, Kate developed her love of photography in 2011 while investigating earthquake damage in New Zealand. What began as a compulsion to document the environment expanded into a fascination for capturing portraits. This, in conjunction with her love for all things classical, render her aesthetic clean and timeless—a nod to the past but assuredly modern in appeal.
GEMMY WOUD-BINNENDIJK ISSUE NO. 3
Her creative path began with liquid pigments and a brush, but, as life so often does, her path took her away from painting. In claiming space for her creative practice, Gemmy, picked up a camera and started experimenting. “This became a way for me to paint again” Through the manipulation of light and pixels, Gemmy began creating work that exists somewhere in-between painting and photography.
