About The Artist
Katie Chirichillo is a fine art film photographer based in Beacon, New York in the beautiful Hudson Valley. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography from SUNY New Paltz in 2012.
Her work investigates the people and spaces around her, and how those people inhabit those spaces, may it be permanent or for a brief moment. The people examined in her photographs are those closest to her, though the candid nature can leave the viewer curious. A keen awareness of the quick and often unnoticeable "in-between" instances have earned Katie great praise in the field.
Photographing people and their interactions with surroundings stemmed from her continued involvement in the underground punk music scene. This is an environment that is constantly changing and thriving, over minutes, hours, and years, due to the influx of its musicians, contributors, and their affinity towards the community.
