Catherine Just is an award winning photographer, artist and mentor living part time in both Los Angeles, California and Paris, France. Her career began in 1987 studying photography, film and video at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and fell in love with conceptual photography. Catherine's work has been published on the cover of National Geographic Magazine, inside and as well as galleries around the globe including her most recent collaborative show in Paris, France. Catherine believes that photography can be used to gather up evidence of what's living in between the words and to document the unseen but deeply felt spaces and places within the internal and external landscape. She uses a variety of cameras, lenses and films to express different aspects of life including a vintage 4x5 camera alongside the New 55 Film, A vintage Polaroid SX-70 with the new Impossible Project film and Nikon Digital 35mm dslr with a slight obsession with her 85mm 1.4 lens. Her work takes her around the globe, within the last year her personal project took her to France, Morocco, Italy, Mexico, Canada, Spain, and all over the United States.  She teaches workshops and courses both online and in person as well as creating images for highly visible creatives for their websites, books and creative projects. Her most prized creation is her son Max Harrison who happens to have Down syndrome and teaches her the most valuable tool to creativity is love.
