Katharina Mayer
20 years of »familia«

Her multiple award-winning works have been exhibited throughout Europe and are represented in numerous international collections.

The main interest of her “familia” project, which she has been working on since 2001, is the central importance of the family as a universal form of life that is widespread throughout the world.

The photographer visits families in European cities to photograph them in their living environment and sometimes also in their gardens. She uses the tried and tested form of the group portrait, as they used to be taken at the photographer’s studio on the occasion of special family celebrations. A family portrait forms the boundary between the public and the private. Finding this border and experimenting on it is the artist’s concern.
