BIO >>
Katerina Jebb is a leading UK photographer who is famous for her unconventional technique using an industrial size photocopier machine to create striking pictures. Her traditional photographic works are made unique through her use of colour and composition in the prints. Katerina's "photocopier" pieces involving Tori Amos are featured in the From The Choirgirl Hotel album and tourbook. It has been noted that each final piece is actually "a collage of pictures with subtle changes that give the work interest and character."

"I saw both of the photographers books. Katerina Jebb. She did the cover and some of the inner photos. The cover is me being on a photocopier and how you accomplish this is by snogging a machine. You have to suspend it in mid air, because it's not as big as your body, and for seven minutes it's photocopying your thoughts. The strange thing is, they're only two of these machines in Europe and they are in actual photocopy shops, so I was on this machine while Tom and Petera were on their computers, and I'm suctioned to it in the corner. As they continue doing their thing. It's all a bit strange. ...."
--Tori Amos, SonicNet/Yahoo! Chat, April 13, 1998

Tori Amos clambered on top of a photocopier to create this Katerina Jebb picture for the artwork on her forthcoming, as yet untitled, album. "Picture This," Amos told Q. "There's a photocopy office, the fluorescent light is still buzzing and there I am snogging the massive machine in the corner. The only way you can stay on the machine is to have a piece of your body suctioned onto it. It takes seven minutes a picture."
--Tori Amos, Q Magazine, April 1998


MUSICIANS Katerina's photography was also featured in Kylie Minogue's Breathe, Hits +; Paddy Casey's Amen (So Be It); Mica Paris' Whisper a Prayer; and INXS' Full Moon, Dirty Hearts album.
