Cathy Immordino grew up in the suburbs of Minneapolis where she was exposed to the arts before she even spoke a word. Around the age of five, she was gifted aPolaroid instant camera to help occupy her time as her bones healed from a destructive car accident. That was when Cathy developed a keen eye for the arts and noticed the world around her differently.
It wasn’t until after a career as an entertainer that Cathy considered herphotography as more than just a hobby. In 2008, her first assignments were tophotograph the nightlife of Los Angeles at places like the Playboy Mansion andstadiums turned into massive raves. Cathy grew out of photographing the nightlifeas soon as she discovered fine art and the possibilities of digital manipulation.
In 2009, Cathy began exhibiting her work in galleries and online exhibitions. As an emerging photographer, she was one of 160 Los Angeles photographers featured in the 2010 Month of Photography Los Angeles, better known as MOPLA. Cathy hopes to one day take over the fine art of photography world with a unique edge to make a name for herself in this world.
Cathy Immordino is a Los Angeles based photographer. She is currently working toward getting a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts degree at Academy of Art University.
I started photographing to remember the world that exists at that particular time in mylife. I remember looking through everything my mother photographed several yearsearlier when I was a child and noticed how much the world around us has changed.Now, I photograph people, places and things to bring awareness and also to completelychange them in the final print. Every picture I take I want the viewers to be moved tochange the way they perceive the world around them.
I like to be involved more in my photos. The involvement stems from a desire to capturemore of my point of view within an image. I do more than just take an image in cameraand print it. Some images are photomontages, while others become prints made withalternative processes and event a press. As life evolves, so will my photography andstyle of artistic manipulation.
