Christa Holka photographs people. In her work, a portrait is the occasion for an encounter that is full of (often very queer) potential. Her photographs say, 'something is happening'. In Holka’s work, though, this moment of action is layered with memory and anticipation - with what happened before and what might happen next.
Holka specialises in portraiture (with a focus on artist portraits), live art and performance, reportage, art/performance/exhibitions documentation, behind-the-scenes for fashion and stills photography for film and television. Christa has an MA in Fine Art from Central St.Martins College of Art & Design, a BFA in Photography from Columbia College Chicago and a BA in Literature from the University of New York at Buffalo. She is based in London.
