Nature subdued in new work by Kate Breakey

Patchnose on Lace

One of my favorite contemporary artists, for over two decades, is Australian-born photographer Kate Breakey. I fell in love with her Small Deaths series when she was still living in Austin. She’s been in Tucson for many years now, but she still shows new work at Stephen L. Clark Gallery off W. 6th Street.

I went to see her new exhibition of hand-colored photographs a couple weeks ago, and I’m sharing a few of my favorites with you here.

Not only are the works themselves beautiful and tender, but they are gorgeously framed as well.

Breakey’s exhibition runs through December 16th. Go see it if you can.
