After working and living in New York as a photojournalist for over 30 years, Kathy Kmonicek has relocated to Morganton in the beautiful state of North Carolina. In her short time here, she has found an array of new subjects: the magnificent countless trails, mountain ranges, lakes, waterfalls, and scenic vistas of her new home state.
Her background in photography includes being a staff photographer for two major newspapers followed by a fulltime freelance career where she worked for The New York Times, the Associated Press, the New York Daily News, among many other clients. As a staff photographer for a New York Newspaper, she has had the honor of being a finalist twice for a Pulitzer Prize.
In addition, she holds a Master of Fine Arts degree in Photography and has had the privilege to teach Photojournalism at various Universities in the New York Metro area.
