Award-winning photographer Kat Moser explores the potency of the female form and
the otherworldly aspects of earth and water through her elegant, ethereal and often
enigmatic photographs. By envisioning age-old cultural narratives first experienced in
fairy tales, mythology and legends, Moser allows the viewer to revisit mystery and
imagination through fresh eyes.
Moser was drawn to photography from the world of fashion. Her daily interactions with
women in the creative, couture-like setting of her destination boutique, Nouvelle Eve,
led her to appreciate the rich diversity of women’s individual beauty, both externally and
internally. Moser’s ever-deepening exploration of the true nature of female beauty
impelled her to eventually leave the world of fashion to focus on her photography, which
increasingly had been recognized by galleries and collectors for its entrancing
explorations of women and nature.
Using a converted infrared camera, Moser often depicts women as wholly integrated
elements of the natural environment, ranging from peaceful bodies of water to rugged,
unforgiving terrains, and representing both the beauty and strength of her dual subjects.
Sometimes hazy and dreamy, other times stark in their clarity, each photograph serves
as a window into the special places that exist just beyond the shadows.
Over the years, Moser has studied with photographers Joyce Tenneson, Doug Beasley,
Elizabeth Opalenik, and Connie Imbodem and counts among her influences Clarence
John Laughlin, Deborah Turbeville, Sarah Moon, and Duane Michals. She maintains
studios in Omaha, Nebraska, and Snow Mass, Colorado, but has photographed in
locations throughout the United States and overseas. Her photographs have been
widely exhibited over the past two decades, and her work is included in numerous
corporate and private collections.
