Kate Nolan is an Irish visual artist based in Dublin, Ireland, focused on extended photographic stories that examine the nature of identity.
Drawn to “in-between” places, she is intrigued by the effects of shifting histories of areas in flux. Nolan collaborates with local communities over extended periods to give a voice to these changes. Her work combines still and moving images with the stories of individuals. Through these inquiries, she begins to highlight the latent contradictions and tenuous relationships between political borders and cultural identity.
Nolan’s work has been featured in a wide range of photography publications and exhibited in solo and group shows in Ireland and internationally. Neither, her long-term work exploring the lives of women in Kaliningrad, Russia won the Alliance Française Photography Award 2013, Magnum Graduate Award 2015, and was nominated for Foto Book Festival Kassel’s Best Photobook of 2014. Neither was published as an artist book in September 2014.
