Kata Geibl (1989, Budapest) is a photographer living and working in Budapest, Hungary. Her work is mainly focused on global issues, capitalism, the Anthropocene, and the ambiguities of the photographic medium. A background in Liberal Arts has informed the way she creates her projects. Drawing concepts from Philosophy and Cultural Studies, Geibl uses metaphorical images to fill the gaps where words fall short. Geibl’s long-standing interest in the ambiguity of photography – how we are trained to treat photographs as evidence while approaching them with intense suspicion – is palpable throughout her practice. Harnessing this tension, she presents the implications of a genuine phenomenon without adhering to straight documentary methods that habitually signal truthfulness. Instead, she mixes genres to produce her visual universe – a commentary on our relationship to photography as much as on the implications of capitalism.
