Katherine Knight

BIRTH PLACE Ottawa, Ontario

Toronto-based artist Katherine Knight captures the quiet moments before a humid summer storm in this black and white Photography from her series called The Bubble, created between 1998-2001 at Lake Scattergood in the Gatineau Hills. Known for here landscape-based Photographyic work, Knight seeks to capture the intangible qualities of air, light, and stillness. Here, she conjures a fleeting summer moment: children in the process of making large soap bubbles, which, in this series, become metaphors for impermanence and inevitable change.

Three figures are making large bubbles with loops and one is wearing a bathing suit (clothing) and is jumping from the dock into the lake, them back to the viewer.
