Kat Wilson's "Habitats" series of digital photographs explore the lives and personalities of her sitters through elaborate orchestrations of the possessions and spaces that constitute their everyday environment. Employing centuries-old compositional devices, Wilson's theatrically conceived portraits transcend the quotidian familiarity of the personal belongings and spaces they depict, casting her subjects as both intimately vulnerable, and heroic.
