Eastman Kodak, the company which pioneered so much in photography from the 1880s through the 1960s, could have owned digital imaging; the very first electronic camera was born in one of Kodak's labs. Instead, they missed that boat, going into a tailspin that resulted in their eventual bankruptcy. Tied to that economic engine, the fortunes of Rochester, New York, the archetypal company town where Kodak had its headquarters, fell as "Big Yellow" collapsed.
Catherine Leutenegger's attentive, deadpan studies of Rochester today explore the face of a city once central to photography but now irrelevant and adrift.
Catherine Leutenegger's (b.1983) photographs have been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions on the international scene: Aperture Gallery, New York; Museum für Gestaltung, Zurich; Museum Bellerive, Zurich; Bieler Fototage, Biel; Fotomuseum, Winterthur; F/Stop.
She is the recipient of several major fellowships including two Swiss Federal Design Grants (2006 and 2008); the Raymond Weil International Photography Prize (2008) and the BCV Encouragement Prize (2006). In 2007 she took part of an artist residency program in New York and started her project named Kodak City in Rochester.
