Vivid Conversations is a weekly podcast for women at midlife hosted by Bronwyn Simons and Annagrace Kaye of Vivid: The New Menopause. This week, Bronwyn talks to conceptual photographer Catherine Just. In this juicy, deep conversation we talk about cracking open, trusting our intuition, rewriting our roles at midlife, body wisdom, and the creative ache.
Catherine Just is an award winning photographer, artist and mentor. Her photographic career started in 1987 after she checked herself into drug treatment. In early sobriety she found that she could express visually what was so uncomfortable for her to express verbally. She studied Conceptual Photography at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and began an exploration of self portraiture and alternative processes. Catherine believes that photography can be used to gather up evidence of what’s living in between the words. She uses photography as a tool for transformation.
