Lives and works in London, UK
Featured in Vogue Italia and British Journal of Photography Burdon's portrature and studies of the human form showcase her unique gaze and perspective. During the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, Burdon focused on working with models who were also couples as both a measure of safety and a study of intimacy in isolation.
“I hope for a personal layer to manifest in my work; scenes filled with familiarity and curiosity are made from loose, spontaneous moments I have captured with friends. My images are always driven by imagination with femininity at the heart of my practice.”
“At its essence, my work has always related back to my own body; reflections of pleasure, pain, growth - inviting introspection into the ambiguity and complexity of emotions. I hope for a personal layer to manifest in my work that acts as bridge of empathy towards viewers, Multi-layered metaphysical symbiosis are translated into scenes of familiarity with surreal undertones, creating a unique, female-focused, vision, driven by imagination with feminist socio-political issues at the heart of my practice.” - Katie Burdon
