About me

Cat Zauner is a Fine Artist born and raised in Hong Kong, now living in London. ​ The artist specialises in digital and film photography, with added expertise in image distortion and manipulation through Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom. She also has experience in the creative direction of freelance projects that've challenged her skill set in order to produce materials best suited to the client. ​ Her body of work in progress is an extension of lived experiences, reflected through a process of representing groups of minorities in ways that are not usually shown. Her work displays a response to earlier investigations on racial, cultural, and geographical displacement through traumatic events. As her interests fluctuates so does the style of her work, and the types of conceptual designs she explores vary from day to day. It has become apparent over the course of her development, that her practice is a constant steady progression of developing ideas and processes.
