Katja Materʼs work originates from a meta-perspective and generally confronts the possibilities and impossibilities of photography. Rather than documenting frozen moments in time, she records the numerous ways we can look at and think about photographic images. She turns the medium on itself, and in doing so, disturbs its status of accuracy. Instead of looking through photography as a more or less transparent medium, Materʼs intention is to make viewers look at photography. By visualizing areas in which technique yields images different from human perception, she shows the intangible character of the medium, using photography as a creating rather than a documenting medium. Katja Mater lives and works in Amsterdam, NL.
