Kate Wimer is a photographic artist from Minneapolis, Minnesota. She spends the majority of her photographic endeavors photographing the way perceptions of place and home are constructed. Wimer believes photography can be an expression of gratitude, an element of a visual song or poem used to still and understand the world.
Wimer holds a BFA in studio art from Southern Utah University, and an MFA in photography from Savannah College of Art and Design. Her photographs are continually published and exhibited nationally and internationally.
In this transient and nomadic age, our sense of belonging to a place is challenged. The landscapes of our past become touchstones, things to which we return and measure the distance. This sequence of photographs from my childhood home of Minnesota and temporary residence in Georgia flow together to construct a metaphor for a private view, a layered and decentered sense of place.
