Photography: Kitra Cahana

Kitra Cahana is speaking at The Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles tonight. I’ve been following her work since she popped into the documentary photography scene with a debut image on the cover of the New York Times. She’s young and talented. I admire her work. I plan to attend the lecture if I can make arrangements tomorrow.

She is discussing Rainbowland.

…a story she shot for COLORS #76: Teenagers, which was honored by World Press Photo and POYi. This work focuses on the Rainbow Family, an informal group that holds free gatherings around the world. These gatherings welcome people of all races, religions, ethnicities, and social status, with the common thread being a spiritual focus towards peace, love and unity…

I’d like to take just one picture like her. Her style is distinctive and fresh. Her webiste is worth a visit. Please be advised that some images might be considered NSFW.
