Color Me Katie

I stumbled upon Katie Sokoler’s photography after watching this short documentary on her street art and immediately developed a huge crush (watch the video and you will too)!   Katie credits being forced to photograph 100 strangers in 5 hours during a college project with inspiring her art.  The above is an image from her Bubble series, where she sets creative traps and waits for the perfect moment to snap the shutter.  Her blog,  ColorMeKatie, takes you behind the scenes of her projects, her involvement with Improv Everywhere and life with her adorable cat Moo.

Keep reading for more “creative traps” set by Katie!
