Caterina Maina (b. 1998) is a fine arts photographer currently completing her BFA in Photography with a minor in Sustainability at Massachusetts College of Art and Design. She was born and raised in Rhode Island, and currently resides and works in Boston, MA. Working primarily with a 4x5 Large Format View Camera, her photographs range from examining close relationships between her family and friends, to examining the natural world and the connection one has to it through landscape and portraiture work. Fascinated by the power of human relationships and one's connectivity with their environment, she strives to create an impact on those who view her work. The daughter of an Italian immigrant, she was raised with a love for understanding and exploring the unknown. She is greatly influenced by her personal connections, political issues of her time period, and natural history.
