about

Katie Harwood (b. 1981) is an artist and photographer based in Colorado. She earned an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and a BA from Columbia College Chicago. Most recently, Harwood received the Innovations in Imaging award from the Society for Photographic Education for her series Everything Is Fine Here. She is the Founder & Navigator at Big Bad Bettie Press, a small publishing company dedicated to the image and the object. Her work has been exhibited widely in the US, exists in private and museum collections, and has been published in online journals such as Don’t Take Pictures and F-Stop.

Katie Harwood grew up in an idyllic American midwestern suburb in the age of excess. Spending lots of time at home, the space served as a kind of reliquary for the families past and present - almost nothing was thrown away. Her mother’s unflinching attachment to collecting personal archives, ordinary objects, and artwork both monetarily and personally valuable, has impacted Harwood’s practice. Working in an expand documentary photography style, her work is grounded in places of personal significance. She draws on her unfolding influences of kin, environment, and suburbia and explores the oddities that occur in these spaces.
