Instagram Takeover – Kata Geibl

Kata Geibl’s photographic practice centres on how we collectively and visually recognise change. “The way we consume, inquire, vote, communicate, and work is rapidly changing everyday.”, Geibl says, “I believe we all can feel the rise of a new era even when we lack words to describe it.” She will be sharing recent projects Sisyphus (2018) and Uncanny Valley (2017) alongside pictures from her ongoing series, There is nothing new under the sun. (2019-). Taking its title from the enigmatic and mystical biblical book of Ecclesiastes, Geibl links our contemporary philosophical debates on progress to those of over two millennia ago.

Originally from Budapest, Hungary, Geibl is currently based in the Netherlands. Her work is mainly focused on humanity, collective memory and the ambiguities of the photographic medium. In 2018 she received the Photography Scholarship of the Association of Hungarian Photographers, was a finalist at Breda Photo Talent Program and won the emerging talent Paris Photo Carte Blanche Students Award.

Geibl is taking over @paperjournalmag from today until the 21st of October. Follow her @katageibl and see more of her work at www.katageibl.com.
