Katrin Koenning (b.1978, Germany) is a photographer from the German Ruhrgebiet, currently based in Naarm, Melbourne Australia. Situated in the documentary tradition, Katrin’s intimate photographs and sequences are of the everyday. Koenning offers a way of seeing in which the greater living world, the human and the animal occupy an equal space – connected rather than apart. In careful image-dialogues, she explores extended narrative possibilities and the currencies of the document.
Her work is regularly exhibited in Australian and international solo and group exhibitions, and she is a former editor and picture editor of the Australian PhotoJournalist Magazine, an annual photography and human rights publication. Koenning’s images are published widely and she has won numerous awards. Katrin regularly gives workshops in photographic practice and thinking. She is represented by Reading Room Melbourne and East Wing.
