This unique photograph is by award winning photographer and digital twister, Katrina Maksimuk from Ventura, CA
Katrina Maksimuk’s art is inspired by a desire to seek out the history of what shapes others by looking through the overlooked power and entertainment lens of daily life. Katrina continues to constantly explore different creative mediums in the arts including performance, theatre, writing, film and graphic design; yet she considers her core art principals aligning most with photojournalism. She appreciates the interconnectivity of people and the power that a photograph has to acknowledge similarities versus differences. For Westside ArtWalk, Katrina will be showcasing her series of work on gender bending including Drag Kings, Transgender and Gender Rebels refusing to accept the social construct of gender roles and expression.
