Kate Izor is a photographer, filmmaker, colorist and educator based in New England. Following her education in photojournalism, Kate studied the contemporary culture and profession of photography as the photographic assistant and studio manager for master Magnum photographer Bruce Davidson. She then began teaching at the Maine Media Workshops (MMW) and the International Center for Photography in New York City.
As her experience in imaging grew, Kate became the Photography Programs Director at MMW for three years, where she worked to create a dynamic environment fostering creative vision, craftsmanship and expression in the media arts for thousands of students. She recently left her MMW position to pursue her own vision, encompassing filmmaking into her repertoire and co-founding Turkey Run Productions with filmmaker Bruno Toré.
In her work, Izor’s camera captures what we don’t see, at times hope for, and at times would rather ignore than be faced with, answering questions of identity and social integration. She has had one solo exhibition and has been a part of several group exhibitions.
