Kathryn Rabinow, who describes herself as “a former academic and a former psychologist”, now uses her camera and computer to create large abstract images that “reveal the essence and unexpected beauty” of everyday objects.
Rabinow talked to Guidry News Service at Houston's Jung Center where her show, “Seeing with the Soul” is on display through the month of February.

“About five years ago I got a digital camera and I started to play,” she said. “And I started to have more time and work with the computer and saw I could see things that people don’t see.”
Her abstracts focus on the differences in the way that one can view the world. "I look at a photograph that I've taken and think 'what if'; using 21st century technology I create images that can speak to the inner self/to the soul."
During the interview, Rabinow described the thought process and techniques she used on each of the works displayed at the Jung Center and encourages viewers of her works to bring their own interpretations to the experience.
Her next show, at the Peel Gallery on Montrose, will feature different works of art during FotoFest.
