Kristie works in the photographic field––as a teaching artist, image-maker, writer, and emerging scholar, based in Chicago. She received an MA in Arts Administration & Policy from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and a BA in Photography from Columbia College Chicago.

Through her photographic work, she has become a steadfast collaborator in the arts community, documenting dance, music, and visual artists. With years of training in dance, capoeira, and yoga, Kristie brings a keen eye to capturing movement. Her photography has been published in Dance Magazine, Pointe Magazine, Chicago Magazine, amongst many others, and has been used for promotional materials for performing arts organizations nationwide. In 2012, after a successful Kickstarter campaign, she published her first photo book, The Beauty of the Sequence: A Photo Essay of the Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series. The book project was subsequently featured in Yoga Journal publications in the United States, Australia, and Japan. Her photographic work has been supported by grants from the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and the Illinois Arts Council.

As a writer and arts worker, her interests include contemporary approaches to historical processes, photography history and interpretation, and museum education. As an educator, she has taught darkroom, alternative process, and digital photography programs for young people in informal learning environments, prioritizing visual literacy and material experimentation.

Kristie is a contributing writer and photographer for Sixty Inches From Center. View some of her contributions here.
