Do you know Kathy Lo? I bet you’ve seen her around; camera in hand (and probably laptop, too). She is forever running around backstage, snapping models laughing or posing or looking bored, trying to find wifi to upload photos. A true talent, Kathy has been around the city since 2008, working for COACD, NYMag, the journal, and various model agencies. Capturing vulnerable photos of the city’s most beautiful as well as stunning landscapes, and her cat’s tail, Kathy is a steadfast photography presence in and around NYC. Keep your eye out for her.
