The next in our series of stylish Charlotteans, through the lens of a Light Factory photographer Periodically, we ask a photographer with The Light Factory, Charlotte’s unique photography center, to make portraits of people they find stylish here.

We’re seeking the looks of the city through varying lenses. And we’re looking for everyday appearances, not special-event finery.

This month, Katherine Kirchner shares her take. Kirchner’s background is local – she went to school in Union County, sold cameras at Circuit City, studied commercial photography in Asheboro before getting her bachelor of fine arts from UNCC, interned with NYC fashion photographer George Holz, and has taught classes at the Light Factory. She liked the turn her fine arts training took her photography.
