Kaitlin Jencso portrays carefully constructed moments in time that communicate a specific, fleeting feeling. Photographs are a space to explore, process, and discover my fears and truths. Her exploration of the beauty in the mundane has led to a voyeuristic, yet cinematic approach to seeing.
She explores the emotional territory of ever-expanding and evolving relationships. Feelings of loss, movement, sense memory, nostalgia, ephemera, bloodlines, and the land create narratives. Although she photographs the commonplace, it is done in a thoughtful and insular way to capture a feeling instead of merely recording reality. These distilled moments heighten the senses into small, transcendent experiences.
Kaitlin graduated with a BFA from the Corcoran College of Art + Design in 2012. She won Best Fine Art Series at FotoWeek DC in 2016 and 2014. She also received an Award of Merit in the Focal Point show at the Maryland Federation of Art in 2014.
