Kathryn Kolb

Born in Indiana, Kathryn Kolb grew up in Charlottesville, Virginia. She attended Emory University in Atlanta, graduating with a BA in History in 1983. Kolb began working as a freelance journalistic photographer in Atlanta in 1986, after studying photography at the Southeastern Center for the Arts. Since the mid-1990s, Kathryn Kolb has turned exclusively to fine art photography, exploring imagery of natural forms and landscapes in both color and black and white. Her most recent work, mostly in color, is perhaps more akin to abstract painting than to photography, yet Kolb stays true to her medium in its purest form—all works are straightforward, un-manipulated images printed by the artist herself. Her editorial work is characterized by an artistic style with strong graphic elements. Her photographs have been widely published and have appeared in Smithsonian, Veranda, Rolling Stone, Nature Conservancy, Orion magazine, and others. Special photographic projects Kolb accomplished include: a series of environmental portraits of regional artists for the Atlanta Journal and Constitution and of Athens musicians, including artists REM and Indigo Girls. Her work was included in Sierra Club publications and she illustrated several articles fro Smithsonian magazine. The Wilderness Society commissioned Kolb to photograph roadless and wilderness areas of the southeastern Appalachians for the publication, Why Wilderness? What the Last Remaining Wildlands of the Southern Appalachians Mean to the People of the Southeast, published in 2004. A book of her photography, Kathryn Kolb Photography, was published in 2008.
