Katrin Koenning

German-born Katrin Koenning is a documentary photographer living and working in Melbourne, Australia. Much of her work investigates and challenges the ordinary and everyday. Her images continue to be exhibited internationally, and have been showcased at different festivals.

Coming from a story of movement through language, culture and continent, she is interested in physical and emotional connection to place, and relationship to environment. Based in still photography and the moving image, a lot of her work is an inquiry into these themes and has at its core the idea of returning to things.

She is a former Editor of the Australian PhotoJournalist Magazine and curatorial adviser for Wallflower Photomedia Gallery, Mildura. She currently lectures at Photography Studies College, Melbourne.
