Scottish singer-songwriter and co-producer Kathy Muir likes to be in front of an audience. What she is less well known for is her work behind a camera lens. Her first memory of owning a camera was from collecting comic-strip wrappers found inside Bazooka Joe chewing gum. “I had to collect a lot of Bazooka comics to send off for the ‘FREE! REAL CAMERA’. It was a magical moment.
Today she uses a Canon 5D MkII and her trusty iPhone. She can be found taking photos in her favorite cities Edinburgh, Paris, London and New York, or of the things she knows best: motorcycles, natural landscapes, railways stations and her fellow musicians.
Kathy is interested in the history of photography, with a particular penchant for 1920’s pictorial photography as seen through the lens of the Seattle Camera Club. Determined to raise awareness of, and to help preserve the work of these photographers, she collaborated with the University of Washington to create www.seattlecameraclub.com.
