suckerPUNCH: describe your project.
kate HUTCHINSON: really for as long as i can remember i have been obsessed with light. i love to photograph light and watch light as it changes throughout the day. this project developed in winter when the sun went down early and i was left with the light of the street lamps. i started studying this artificial light and thought that it would be a great light to photograph my neighbourhood under. and so that winter i spent much time wandering the streets and alley ways in my neighbourhood looking for the right light and the right subjects.
sP: what or who influenced this project?
kH: winter, the street lamps and my neighbourhood.
sP: whose work is currently on your radar?
kH: recently i have been really into artists that work in interventions in the landscape, either graffiti artists, sculptors, or photographers who record their ephemeral interventions. some examples are: alejandra laviada, gabriel orozco, william lamson, erwin wurm, andy goldsworthy, and robin rhode.
