Meet the Artist:
Dida Kutz on Earth Day,
April 22nd from 2-4 pm

Born in Mexico to an American father and Mexican mother, Dida Kutz grew up in Southern California steeped in art appreciation (father was a fine silversmith and mother was an art model) and a deep love of the ocean. She studied biology at UCLA and San Francisco State University, and did not take up photography as a serious pursuit until 2011.

Although handmade prints are an integral part of her oeuvre, Kutz confesses to shooting digital for the sake of convenience. Her work has been shown in multiple regional and international juried shows, including here at the Center for Photographic Art in Carmel, and most recently in the 2017 Berlin Foto Biennale. She became a member of West Coast photography's ImageMakers in 2016.

Kutz supports her film habit by working as a technical editor. DidaKutz.org and f11m.org
