Anonymous, Bakersfield, California, 2011. Shirtless tattooed father with blond daughter in bikini on his lap, hand grabbing his neck. He is holding a cigarette.
The series are social photography, but for me the portraits are art as well. It is Katy’s style that grabbed me. The portraits show vulnerability & sadness. People with things on their mind. Beautiful portraits of people without hope.
Katy’s photos inspire me.
