Kate Garner, born Kathryn Mary Garner, is an English photographer and fine artist. She has been an extremely interesting life starting from when she was a child. Garner was expelled from high school at the age of 16 and became a runaway who joined The Children Of God. To escape the grasp of the cult she hitchhiked from London through Eastern Europe to India in 1970, where she lived for a year as a traveller before being located by her parents. She attended art school at Blackpool in the North of England and later moved to London to start her career.
Garner first came widely into the public eye as one third of the 1980's avant-garde, new wave pop music project Haysi Fantayzee. Later on, she then returned to painting, photography and video, launching a successful media arts career, starting with her collaboration with Sinéad O'Connor, in which she created memorable images of O'Connor for her 1987 debut, The Lion and the Cobra.
Garner has since photographed a wide range of musicians and celebrities, such us Dr. Dre, Angelina Jolie, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, David Bowie, Cameron Diaz, PJ Harvey, John Galliano, Björk and Kate Moss.
Kate Garner is a very eclectic and singular figure, able to play with art and fashion in a very distinctive and recognizable way. Her work has appeared in all the most famous fashion and art magazines worldwide. She is a continuing contributor to i-D magazine.
