To understand another human being you must gain some insight into the conditions which made him what he is.

About Katie Forbes

I am inspired by the array of people that make up our world, especially those fighting for something they believe in. I believe in minimal editing/image manipulation for my work.

I look forward to every opportunity I am afforded to meet and document new people and situations.  The mission of my photography is to document the cultural climate of our times.

My background in anthropology and travel has had a great influence in sculpting my street-photography and photojournalism style.

I am looking to expand my portfolio and welcome contact regarding opportunities.
