Photographer Katrin Korfmann is internationally recognized for her intriguing aerial images of human interactions in public spaces.
Korfmann's photographs examine the photographic concepts of framing, perspective, and the social dimensions of perception. The element of time is an important determinant in her work, which is made visible by presenting different sequential incidents that have been registered within a given period and location, in a singular spatial arrangement. Korfmann’s work can be characterized by a formal level of composition, structure and spatio-temporal experience, which culminate in a visual investigation of social constructions and behavior in public spaces.
Since the late nineties Korfmann has exhibited internationally in galleries, museums, alternative art institutions and public spaces. She has been widely collected in both private and public collections such as the ING Art Collection, European Patent Office and the Robert Bosch Foundation.
Originally from Germany, Korfmann lives and works in Amsterdam, The Netherlands and is a tutor at the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague and an advisor for the Dutch Mondriaan Fund.
