Review by J. Pat - April 27, 2011

Images from her collection Between Earth and Water, lend a dark yet gentle hand to the world of black and white photography. With high contrast, high ISO’s, and dark vignetting, her images portray a different side of the world that we’ve become so accustomed to. Her work shows varying speeds of nature, from swift seagulls to the thousands of years it takes to create rock formations. Dedicated to the art of storytelling, her emotional images give us a view to the darker side of nature, while still preserving the quaint and soft side of the world we know. With several awards and exhibitions under her belt, it’s clearly stated that Kat’s photography is eye-catching, and that the public enjoys seeing her portrayal of black and white.

Photographer, gallerist, publisher, and editor Kat Kiernan is truly a force of nature. Her name is synonymous with excellence in photo opportunities and she is making quite a footprint in the photo world within a short period of time...
— Aline Smithson, Lenscratch
In the world of theatre, a “triple threat” is a performer who can act, sing and dance. In the world of photography, a “triple threat” is Kat Kiernan, photographer, writer/editor and curator. As someone who understands the field from so many angles, I was delighted when I heard that Panopticon Gallery in Boston would be re-opening under her direction.

Writing About Your Work
Maine Media Workshops, Rockport, ME
June 1-2, 2019
Producing a strong photographic body of work is a tremendous accomplishment, but without good writing and editing skills, photographers may face difficulty connecting with galleries, curators, critics, or even their own website visitors. In this two-day workshop, learn ways to enhance professional practice through writing. Not your typical “how to” writing workshop, this class will focus on the many instances in which photographers are asked to write about their work including press statements, interviews, newsletter content, and artist biographies.
