Seeing inspires Kate Jordahl and she exhibits her enthusiasm and passion for the art of photography in her work. In her travels and photography, she searches for the places where the spirit of the earth and the human spirit come together. Using both film and digital capture, Kate stretches her images to beyond the expected representation to a magical and reverent imaging of the land.
In addition to many group exhibitions, she has had featured exhibitions at Vision Gallery, San Francisco, Yamate Gallery, Yokohama, Japan, the Olive Hyde Gallery, Fremont, the Griffin Museum of Photography, Winchester and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art Artist’s Gallery, San Francisco.
