My name is Paola Katherine Rodriguez and I like to people-watch with my analogue cameras.


I am interested in exploring the ideas of identity, advocacy, healing, mindfulness, connection, and relationships through art and photography. 


I am currently working on two projects:

  • Broken Free aims to promote awareness of victimization, while encouraging survivors to break the silence in order to end the violence.
  • In Transit documents the interaction between public transportation users and their environment, with emphasis on their sense of awareness—or lack thereof.​


I have exhibited work at Newspace Center for Photography, Girls’ Club Collection, FIU Miami Beach Urban Studios, FIU Graham Center Art Gallery, and have participated in group shows such as 9 Topics TRIAD at Arthill Gallery in London, UK and The Fifth Annual Exposure Award at Musée du Louvre in Paris, France. My project, Broken Free, was a finalist for FEAST Miami. I was a featured artist at the Take Back the Night program at FIU for two consecutive years. I was awarded a scholarship at the 2014 FIU Thesis I Fall Review, with my project Broken Free


I received a BA and a BFA from Florida International University in 2014 and 2015, respectively. 


In my spare time, or in between projects, I am a painter, a plant-based chef, and a 500-hour Registered Yoga Teacher.


I am based in Miami, for the time being.
