Kate Mercer works across a range of media including photographs, video and collage, exploring cultural uses of photography, particularly human relationships with memory, identity and perception through photographs. Using both found and self-sourced imagery as starting points, her work explores the role of photography as document and self-constructed record.
As well as her own practise, Kate works as a freelance photographer across the south west of the United Kingdom. She also teaches the Photographing People module for Ffotogallery – Wales’ national development agency for photography and lens based media based in Cardiff.
Along with fellow artist and photographer Sarah Goodey, Kate is a volunteer organiser of Celf Ar Y Bryn Casnewydd / Art On The Hill Newport – an open house and open studio arts trail on the west side of Newport, showcasing work by local artists in the community in association with residents, businesses and micro art centres in the area.
