Driven by an enduring interest in the natural world, Katie Riesner is a UK-based photographer and experimental artist. Believing strongly in Moholy-Nagy’s opinion that the camera is a tool that can be used to see the world anew, she explores abstraction and the often-overlooked aspects of our world with close attention to detail. Having cultivated an obsession with looking to find beauty in difficult times, photography became a form of therapy for Riesner in her youth. Her recent projects have stemmed from this; becoming about both trying to find beauty in the mundane and creating her own “alternate” version of the world we know.

Through facilitating creative workshops, and selling my own unique and beautiful prints, I would like to empower those who feel constantly stressed and busy to add a little mindfulness to their day. My goal is to put the inspiring magic of beauty in nature within people's bedrooms and houses, making it impossible to miss; encouraging visitors who may traditionally feel alienated from the art world to revel in the beauty and power of art.
