Kathrin Buzio, 1970, is an Italian - german visual artist who divides her time between Milan, Mallorca, and Miami. She has lived over a decade in Venezuela, during the Chavez regime.
With a background in business administration, in 2004 a personal crisis brings Buzio towards photography, an art form she had always wanted to master and lands at Roberto Mata Taller de Fotografia, Caracas, Venezuela where she begins formal training in travel, street, and documentary photography.
After a long pause involving moving to the US and having a child, she eventually reconnects with photography and with former mentor Roberto Mata (who coincidentally happened to open his workshop in Miami, FL). Later on, she enrolled in different ICP classes (Anja Hitzenberg, Tom Griggs, Christopher Giglio) and earns a certificate in Documentary Visual Story Telling (Karen Marshall, Gaia Squarci, Andrew Lichtenstein) in 2021.
Kathrin Buzio leans toward a personal visual storytelling approach that moves away from the descriptive narrative tradition in documentary photography and video. Her work is focused on themes linked to the relationship between human beings and the environment, family relationships, and self-portraiture. She uses photography, videography, self-published zines, and more recently scanography.
