Art of Dying Volume II | Page 66

To photograph the Procession is to be a witness- bearer to that which joins all participants in this collective experience—death. KATHLEEN DREIER is an international documentary and event photographer currently based in Tucson, Arizona. Kathleen’s work involves short and long- term assignments, select donated service, and personal projects. Kathleen is also a professional social worker with over 25 years experience (child and vulnerable adult abuse, domestic violence, drug and alcohol abuse, poverty). This combined skill set gives Kathleen a unique doorway into establishing rapport with clients and strangers alike. Kathleen’s photography has been largely informed as a student of Mary Ellen Mark and a multi-year workshop assistant for Mary Virginia Swanson. WWW.KATHLEENDREIER.COM 66 | ART OF DYING
