Katharine Cooper was born in 1978 in South Africa. When she was about 8 years old she moved to Zimbabwe until the age of nineteen when she went to Europe. In 2004 she graduated with honours at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie d’Arles.
In 2013 Katharine Cooper travelled back to her homeland South Africa and Zimbabwe. Deliberately ignoring the anti-apartheid sentiments, Cooper followed her own intuition revealing her solidarity with South Africa’s complicated society that suffers from the high costs of apartheid such as disintegration and alienation. Cooper achieved an intimate portrait, in all its diversity but with incredible sensitivity. For her work Katharine Cooper received the Prix de Photographie Marc Ladreit de Lacharrière – l’Académie des beaux-arts. She had a solo show at the L’Académie des beaux-arts, Paris au Palais de l’Institut de France in 2013. From June 29 – October 13th, 2019 Katharine Cooper has a solo show at Kunsthal Rotterdam ‘A Journey to the Homeland’. Cooper received a solo show in Paris Photo Los Angeles in 2013 with Flatland Gallery and in 2014 at Art Brussels. Cooper’s work was also exhibited at Paris Photo in the Grand Palais, in Paris.
