You’ve stumbled (or fallen) or in one way or another made it to my blog. I used to call photographers photographists, hence the URL. I like to think that this blog is bit of a curated collection of little things in a virtual cabinet of wonders.
I’m Kate, a historian and photographer with an affinity for museums and things dead people created. After living in Lugano, Switzerland for two years studying art history for my undergrad, I’ve been lucky enough to explore the world, from Turkey to Iceland to Brazil, and I am infected permanently with that illness called wanderlust. Enthusiasm and creativity are laced with my love of constant discovery (this leads me to just keep getting more degrees, unfortunately). I’m currently living on Vancouver Island, but Montana is and always will be my home.
Here I write about topics I find delightful, including cooking, film photography, cameras, fashion, hiking, art history, feminism, coffee, travelling, or whatever else strikes my fancy!
When I’m not looking for work, (hire me! I write, edit, photograph, and research!) I attempt to teach myself languages (I currently speak Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese), research medical history/fashion, watch Humphrey Bogart films, nature documentaries, and anything with Barbara Stanwyck, crochet, drool over Gothic architecture, photograph my life, bake pies, and devour books as though they were meals.
I’m always ready for a new adventure or challenge, and I come armed with a camera or two (or three!).
