Biography

Kathryn Jago is a photographer/visual artist from Plymouth living in the South West of the UK. Her interest in photography began as a child, fading in her teens, before resurfacing during Motherhood as she documented family life. Despite this focus on her family Kathryn has always used her camera to explore her domestic environment.

 

It was after a period of ill health that photography became her passion. Kathryn’s hobby became her therapy leading her on a journey of self-discovery, achieving a BA Honours in Photography at Plymouth College of Art, where she is now studying for her Master’s degree.

 

The current phase of her photographic journey began on reaching menopause, where Kathryn became more self-aware, finding unexpected confidence in herself and her changing identity. These changes brought about a desire to further investigate her evolving identity, using performance to explore her personal history, domestic space, possessions, and the discrete but intrinsic attachments formed with the objects she treasures. It is hoped that through this exploration and scrutiny of personal belongings, Kathryn might become more in tune with her identity and understand the relationship between these possessions and her mental health. Although this work is autobiographical and part of a personal transformative process and desire to take control of her own life and wellbeing, Kathryn hopes that her experiences and explorations, may provide inspiration for others.
