The Art & Photography of Catherine Kirkpatrick

I do freelance writing, editing and graphics. In 2014, I wrote the introduction for Meryl Meisler's book A Tale of Two Cities: Disco Era Bushwick which was featured on and ("Meryl Meisler’s Disco Era"). In 2015, I wrote the intro for her second book, Purgatory & Paradise: Sassy '70s Suburbia & the City which was also featured on ("Seventies Long Island: The Whole Mishpocha"), where unbelievably, I was quoted a second time. To see all the great press for these books, visit I just finished an essay for the catalog for the Trill Matrix exhibit at the Clemente Art Center in Manhattan.

I have created presentations for Citibank, the Ford Foundation and Applied Semiconductor, and written many articles for Professional Women Photographers. One of these, Sgt. Pepper Uncovered, was named by industry giant PhotoShelter to its list of Top Photography Blog Posts of 2011. In 2012, I created 30 by 30, a blog series for Women's History Month. In it thirty women photographers spoke about the women photographers who inspired them. Interviewees included esteemed critic Vicki Goldberg, triple Pulitzer Prize winning New York Times photographer Ruth Fremson, and Carnegie Hall legend Editta Sherman. (Please note that in the migration to a new website, many lost their original formatting and picked up a few strange characters.) I was also a contributing editor to Imprints magazine.
