About me

Catharina Pavitschitz is an Austrian born, London based photographer. Her work focuses on diversity and body positivity. This includes but is not exclusive to age, size, gender and ethnicity. She also takes great inspiration from the phenomenon of the in between. Intrigued by the way things fall apart and come back together in a different way, her work evolves around the state of transition. Her work is offering impressions rather than a reflection of reality, often showing things that, in reality, were not actually there.
