Katrina James as been selected winner of the latest showcase on the arts hub website ArtSlant. The image titled Brixton – 2010 was selected in the photography category. Showcase Winners are carefully selected by the ArtSlant team of professional art watchers who aim to showcase work from the most promising artists on their site.
Katrina’s work has been shown worldwide in Berlin, Los Angeles, London and Sydney with upcoming shows in Los Angeles and Berlin in early 2011. Australian born and currently based in Berlin Katrina James, takes inspiration from everyday events across the globe, from vibrant street scenes to the sets of video shoots with musicians. A dichotomy through raw ’underground’ and glamorised fashion scenes appears in her work, united by the unique angle captured. Establishing a minimalist and original approach to photography, the result is of instantly recognisable and engaging images, filled with raw energy, emotion and humanity. James’s photographs allow the personalities of her subjects and their surroundings to shine by catching them off-guard and in the moment, which in turn gives them a sense of reality that has defined her signature body of work.
