Katherine Holland


A Toronto-based photographer who loves a challenge. Whether it's making your uncle laugh, wrapping herself around a new fashion editorial, wrestling a musician to submission, or discovering the exact amount of time it takes for a stick of asparagus to look like garbage. She's got your back. Last seen balancing a leaf blower in one hand, a camera in the other.
Presently showing: Party Animals, featuring rescued exotic pets from Canada as guests at a house party.

Why is it important for people to have art in their home or life?

I'm a big believer in the little things. Maybe a picture reminds you of a feeling, the texture on a bowl reminds you of the town where you got it, or the person you were at that time. We need reminders, and we need cues to continue building our own worlds in our minds.
