Catherine Brousse (Photographs) first held a camera in 1976 when she documented the murals of San Francisco. Between 1980 and 1998 she taught French literature and writing in France. After several years in California, she has returned to her native France to live.

"I view myself as a writer who takes pictures. I have always favored black and white photography. While colors enchant me, it is never the color I look for, but the form and natural geometry of the world. Black and white is an ascetic quest for the perfect light that will reveal the perfect lines of this universe and make the beholder revel in it."
