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:
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.
Your generous contributions will go towards supporting film photography and will also provide funding for the
printing and publishing of Broken Free—Volume One.
Thank you for your support!
