Her work is the subject of numerous exhibitions and publications in France and abroad. She is represented by the Olivier Waltman Gallery (Paris, Miami).
Kit Young was born in 1984. He set out on his photographic journey in 2009 when he moved to France where he joined a group of Paris-based photographers led by Gérard Moulin. It was during this period that Kit began to explore the infinite possibilities of darkroom printing and the juxtaposition of seemingly unrelated moments in time to create visual patterns as part of series-based work.
"While I began taking photographs several years ago, I only started taking the medium of photography seriously when I discovered the hands-on nature of black-and-white film and what are now referred to as 'traditional' printing methods. For me, nothing else will do. The four sides of the negative are my point of reference – they enable the viewer to see what I have seen."
Kit is a member of AllFormat, an international photography collective united by a mutual love of film.
