About the Photographer
American, b. 1988
Kathryn Harrison's work deals with the complexities of addiction, disease, and mental illness and how those forces have shaped the lives of her family members. Depicting her brother’s struggles with schizophrenia and the use of opioids, her work straddles the uncomfortable boundaries of unconditional love and the fallibility of the human body. Harrison is an MFA candidate in photography at Yale University and holds a BFA in photography & digital imaging from Ringling College of Art & Design. She is the winner of the 2018 Snider Prize.
