To be really honest, I had some difficulties with the work of KATY GRANNAN. But since a while, her photographs are haunting me, stuck in my mind. GRANNAN’s photographs are about something else, may be it’s how no-one is making direct eye contact with the camera or may be the color and light which are just extraordinary or may be because everyone seems to contain a story.

These pictures were made over the past three years in Los Angeles and San Francisco. Shooting against white stucco walls in strong midday light, the city streets became GRANNAN ’s outdoor studio. Her subjects are most often people whom others pass by without notice and anonymous individuals. Every picture is shot with mesmerizing intensity and shocking jolts of color.

KATY GRANNAN was born in Arlington, Massachusetts, in 1969. Her works predominantly in portraiture and strives to embody the subject’s personality. The artist’s first monograph, Model American, was published by Aperture in 2005. She received the 2004 Baum Award for Emerging American Photographers. She lives in New York City and San Francisco.
