Dead Deer Walking

Kathleen Fonseca (Realtorsguide To The USA) developes narratives using photos sourced from real estate listings that explore American culture, politics and life in general. ~This series is called “Dead Deer Walking”. The photos are generated without human intervention. Infrared cameras are set up at wildlife feeding stations on farms and ranches, equipped with automatic flash and triggered by motion sensors. The sole purpose of the feeding stations is to develop and provide for a growing population of wildlife for hunting purposes. Animals are accustomed to finding food at these stations, the owner knows where to find the animals and the rest is venison in the freezer and a bust mounted over the fireplace. These photos are included in real estate listings to seduce the right buyer with the promise of abundant prey and thrilling hunts. I find the photos graceful, ghostly, ethereal and lovely.

” I split my time between making photographs, writing about photographs, marketing photographs, curating photographs, and raising my daughters.

Since 2019, I’ve been directing content/marketing strategy for The Luupe, a new platform connecting women and non-binary photographers with big brands to create diverse, authentic content. .

In my spare time, I run Humble Arts Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to supporting up and coming art photography. I work with photographers on collaborative interviews to make their photos shine.

I’ve curated over 50 exhibitions online and IRL, collaborating with curatorial heroes like Lumi Tan, Charlotte Cotton, Natalia Sacasa, Roula Seikaly, and Mickalene Thomas, landing press in HyperAllergic, Aperture, FeatureShoot, The New York Times and The New Yorker. 

I recently won the 2019 Blue Sky curatorial prize with Roula Seikaly, and also recently, curated my first museum show at The Ogden Museum in New Orleans.

My writing on photography has appeared in VICE, Slate, Daylight, Aperture, Adobe, Hyperallergic, Photograph, and Time, and my weekly stories and interviews on Humble’s blog have helped get photographers press, representation, and sell their work. 

My own photographs have been featured in Vice, Booooooooom, Paper Journal, Business Insider, Bon Appetit, Lenscratch, and (strangely) Fox News (no regrets). 

I also mentor photographers and am available for a whole lot of projects – let’s connect!
