Kate Atkin

Kate Atkin (b. 1981, Odstock, Wiltshire, UK) lives and works in London. Atkin completed an MA in photography at the Royal College of Art in 2005. Her practice explores form and medium as well as the isolation of specific elements from their context. Her large scale, mostly black and white and intricate pencil drawings are an alternative, slow-paced response to photography.
