Itchy Feet, Aesthetic Eye

 

Katja Kremenic’s work reveals a long-term exploration across summer with its grain, imperfections, blur, and contrasts. Through an analog documentary style, the Berlin-based photographer gives us an intimate and fragile glimpse at her everyday life.

It is such a great place, but it also has its limits. You sometimes wonder what the sea is keeping you away from.
— Katja

Born in Slovenia and raised in Croatia, Katja has a relentless passion for traveling and a deep love for the ocean. “I’ve always lived just a few steps from the sea. Growing up on an island was an experience that gave me love, growth, freedom, and friendship. It is such a great place, but it also has its limits. You sometimes wonder what the sea is keeping you away from.”

Inspired by women and the cinema, Katja tends to relate most to a few and Italian and French classics. “Photographing women comes natural to me. I believe analog photography creates trust and intimacy.” With a strong desire to depict reality, the visual work of the artist proves to be a perfect combination between a sense of authenticity and an eye for aesthetics. “I like to walk the line between the projects that feel real but still have control over them.”
