Katy Grannan


Contemporary Photographers

Katy Grannan: “Grannan’s process is quick; each portrait is taken within the short span of three hours. She arrives at the homes with only a camera, a light and a fan. Grannan transforms the sitter’s room into a stage, pushing beds and moving tables. There is a performative element to the work, on both sides.” (source) I just had the chance to look at her book Model American, and I am quite impressed. I was also thinking of having a conversation with her, but I just found one elsewhere, posted just a few days ago. Also don’t miss this fine article about her work.
