Kathy Shorr was born in Brooklyn, New York. Her work crosses the borders of
documentary, portraiture and street photography. She received her undergraduate degree
in photography from The School of Visual Arts and has an MS in Education, earned while
working as a New York City Teaching Fellow working in the public schools in crisis. Her
work has been shown in galleries in the United States and Europe including the celebrated
Visa Pour L’Image in Perpignan, France. Her book, SHOT …101 Survivors of Gun Violence
in America was published by powerHouse in 2017.
Currently she is working on a three-phase project about mothers of children killed by gun
violence. The first part features mothers in Philadelphia. The project will include a short
video and text written by the mothers. The third phase will have a website in which
mothers from across America will be able to send in their own portraits to be posted on the
site. She lives and works in New York City.
This is a member-only meeting. The meeting Zoom info will be emailed to all members with current memberships on November 2nd.
