Virtual Arts Lecture with Photographer Katie Settel '84 - Friday May 15th

Published Saturday, May 9, 2020

On Friday May 15th at 1PM Oakwood will present our first Virtual Arts Lecture! We’ll be welcoming photographer Katie Settel ‘84 who will be presenting, “(un)Forgotten, The Journey to Remembering”.

Katie has studied with Jay Maisel, The International Center of Photography, and The Fashion Institute of Technology. She opened a studio in 2008, which quickly became known and awarded for her unscripted and authentic images. Katie freelances for numerous newspapers including The Connecticut Post and is a concert house photographer at The Fairfield Theater Company. Concert photography has led her to photograph iconic musicians ranging from BB King to Steven Tyler to Sheryl Crow. Katie's exhibit "Shot in the Dark", 2016, focused on low-light concert photographs, whose title reflected her own strong belief in taking chances.

In 2017, Katie embarked on a personal project, '(un)Forgotten', which debuted in October 2019, drawing national attention from the Associated Press, PEOPLE Magazine, and a score of others. She is currently working with Save the Children on a photographic fundraiser entitled “Superpowersunited”.

Many thanks to Marsha and Jonathan Talbot '57 for their on-going support of this lecture series.
