About / Bio




Kata Geibl (1989, Budapest) is a photographer living and working between Budapest and The Hague. Her work is mainly focused on global issues, capitalism, the Anthropocene, and the ambiguities of the photographic medium.

Coming from a background in Liberal Arts has informed the way she creates her projects. Drawing concepts from Philosophy and Cultural Studies, Geibl steps in with metaphorical images to fill in the gaps where words fall short.

Geibl’s long-standing interest in photography’s ambiguity — how we are trained to treat photographs as evidence while also approaching them with intense suspicion – is palpable throughout her practice. Harnessing this tension, she presents us with the implications of a very real phenomenon without adhering to straight documentary methods that habitually signal truth. Instead, she mixes genres to produce her visual universe — a commentary on our relationship to photography as much as the implications of capitalism.

Her first long-term project entitled Sisyphus premiered at Unseen Amsterdam which was followed by her first solo show in Budapest. She received Paris Photo Carte Blanche Award for the series and in the same year, she was nominated for Palm*  Photo Prize.

In 2019, she received the József Pécsi Photography Scholarship and was a talent for Futures Platform nominated by Capa Center Budapest.

In 2020 she is a Grand Prix Finalist at Fotofestiwal Lodz, won the PHmuseum Vogue Italia Prize and is shortlisted for Palm*  Photo Prize.
