Kathrin Günter has studied extensively gossip, star behaviour and the phenomenon of paparazzi photography. Through various artistic media, formats and techniques her main body of work exposes the allegedly scandalous realm of paparazzi,- and celebrity photography. Parallel studies focus on the so called occultism, including “spirit photography”, “tarot” or “voodoo”, just to name a few. Her recent works combine in a critical and rather humorous way these two seemingly devious phenomena.
