Katie West’s work offers an infinite number of angles into the self-portraiture genre and there’s no other contemporary artist working with photography, writing and the blog in this unique, beautiful, raw and haunting way. Accompanying her ever expanding website, West has put out two books of self-portraiture so far, with examples of her writing featured in her most recent collection, Practical Tokens of Affection. Sometimes gritty, sometimes full of self-conscious wit, West’s work is challenging, stark and unapologetic in its depiction of an artist’s engagement with the shadows of life. (Brooke Ford)
