a short documentary on my studio practice was featured on national geographic online


an interview and images on MUSEUM magazine


my work has been included in the art photographers index:  www.artphotoindex.com


an interview along with images from domestic arrangements, transcendence and deertown is featured on rachel poliquin’s website about all things taxidermy and natural history.  www.ravishingbeasts.com


“Death and denial are what make Kimberly Witham’s beautiful still-lifes serious. . . These C-prints of road kill in decorative settings hark to the Vanitas tradition and William Harnett’s dead-critter still-lifes all gussied up with Ann Craven-like wallpaper paintings. The fiercest of Witham’s photos, Still Life with Steak and Fox, conflates beauty with bestiality, the red meat a perverse splash of delicious red caught on a hook!”

-libby rosof 

libby rosof’s review of construct on the art blog


“The beautifully rendered still life photographs are so bitter sweet, we get to look at beautiful creatures living on after death in a work of art, an exquisite corpse of a different kind.  Witham’s photographs drew a crowd of people who stood and stared a long time; the mixture of repulsion and fascination, ugly and beautiful, cheery and morbid strums a tender nerve.  And the concept that raw steak is not just the color of cabbage roses but can be sexually Dali-nian is genius.”
