Katharina Mouratidi


Contemporary German Photography


Katharina Mouratidi’s photography shows a socially very active photographer who is not afraid of tough topics. About her breast cancer series, she writes that “all the photographs were taken in close co-operation with the women portrayed. My intention was to photograph them as they wanted to present themselves in front of the camera and in public. There were no special rules to observe in the studio; the participants only had the responsibility to pose according to their own interpretations and in the way they would like to be represented, as women in our society affected by breast cancer.”
