Kaitlyn Church is an emerging Melbourne-based documentary photographer and photojournalist, focusing on the ever-changing landscape of Australia. Her upbringing in rural Victoria is a source of inspiration for her primarily long-form photographic work.
In 2021, Kaitlyn completed her Master of Photography, supervised by Dr. Kristian Haggblom and mentored by Jessie Boylan and Regine Peterson. Her graduate show Fordtown, exhibited at Platform Arts in 2021, explored the social ramifications of the closure of the Geelong Ford Factory.
As part of the LAB Studio Artist stream, Kaitlyn will continue to expand upon her Geelong-based project Fordtown through collaboration with experts and former factory workers to develop a detailed photobook.
