ABOUT THE ARTIST: THIS SITE NEEDS UPDATING - SORRY, but I'm planning to create a new site all together - please look at my Saatchi Online Site should you want to look at newer work of mine. You might enjoy looking at this site anyhow- here are my beginnings. There will be quite a few changes coming very soon.
"Photography took me on a journey and just wouldn't let me go and it became a bit of an obsession. I believe one has to follow ones heart in photography and ignore all conventions that may tell one to limit oneself. Photography should be a free exploration of anything that catches ones attention." Katja Heber's inspiration comes mainly from her immediate environment, experiences and encounters, and features various subjects and situations. She uses photography to comment on the human condition. Topics she touches on include impermanence, uncertainty, showing mundane detail in a new light, and catching fleeting moments to give them some appreciation. She has been located mostly in London. Further influences come from film, art, philosophy, and of course, photography. One of her themes consists of finding images that naturally occur within our modern- day city environment that are reminiscent of great masters or art movements. Initially she rarely chose to digitally alter images but lately she has started to experiment with photomontage and the manipulation of images. Katja Heber was born in Germany, but London has been her home for most of her life. Katja Heber is a self-taught photographer and artist. She has a University Degree in modern languages and TEFL. She is represented by Saatchi Art.
