Hailing from South London, Cath turned to photography to develop her own creative vision and independence after a long career in nursing and supporting her creative family.
Cath experiments with many techniques in her photography: wide or fish eye lenses, zoom bursting (moving the lens during exposure) and long exposures.
Her ‘Greenwich Foot Tunnel ‘ series won her an award in the London Street Photography Festival. For this series Cath utilised long exposures to capture movement of people under the Thames, their soft blurry presence is as if they have left their ‘auric’ imprint behind.
Cath’s use of unusual angles and different perspectives in some of her architectural work creates abstract images. Her composite images of the 2016 Serpentine Pavilion designed by Bjarke Ingels Group turned that pavilion into mind bending geometric landscapes, nearly unrecognisable from the original.
Zoom burst techniques can have varying effects on an image, Cath's 'Chihuly' abstract prints, are an example of this. The ground-breaking American glass artist Dale Chihuly creates giant blown glass sculptures. Inspired by these, Cath’s photographs of Chihuly's pieces seem to even further split the glass into shards, shattering across the images.
Join Cath on the 19th of September at Gabriel's Wharf for her special late opening with refreshments in concert with the launch of the London Design Festival on London's South Bank!
