Katerina Christina is a 26-year-old, Greek-American fine art street, documentary, and studio photographer based in New York City. She first picked up a camera in early 2018 in search of a creative outlet to balance her mechanical engineering studies at Stanford University. What started as a hobby is now a daily source of inspiration and appreciation of the world around her. Her street photography focuses on slowing down to appreciate the small but powerful moments we often miss consumed in technology—the quiet moments in the chaos.
Her long-term documentary project ‘Shattered Glass’ tells the stories of women around the world who are shattering barriers and expectations in male-dominated roles, giving fellow females the role models, exposure, and resources they need to break into these fields, all while unapologetically embracing their femininity.
Aside from photography, Katerina creates line drawings with both pen and charcoals. Her style mirrors that of her photography, using minimalism to evoke emotion and intrigue.
Outside of work and her artistic pursuits, Katerina practices Krav Maga, silversmithing, and endurance cycling. She is also an M.Arch candidate at Columbia GSAPP, working toward becoming an architect.
