-- The Child is the Father of the Man evokes a universe of metaphoric and visual possibilities in relation to the theme of how people age. Kathryn Jocobi’s body of work exhibits the changes when a child becomes an adult in these juxtaposed contemporary photographic portraits of the elderly person with his/her image as a child. The images are composed and layered until the connection between mortality, memory and imagination becomes evident.
Working professionally for over 40 years, Kathryn Jacobi is a classically trained, contemporary realist painter, printmaker, and photographer. Her work has been exhibited throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe. In the past decade she has become, “more intrigued by what she now considers a third avenue of practice and exploration”
in the stimulating potentials that are incorporated in digital photography and the computer darkroom. Born in New York City in 1947, Kathryn attended UCLA, UC Berkeley and CSU Northridge, where she received her BA in 1978 and her MA in 1980. She lives in Santa Monica and has a studio in Los Angeles, California, USA.
