Natalie Krick was born in Portland Oregon and moved to Fort Collins Colorado as a teenager. Fueled by her fascination with popular culture, Krick makes photographs that mimic cliche images of sexuality and beauty. In her ongoing project Natural Deceptions, she photographs her mother to explore the darkness associated with a fluctuating identity as well as her own conflicting attraction and aversion to images of sexualized glamorous women. She received an MFA from Columbia College Chicago in 2012 and a BFA from School of Visual Arts in 2008. She currently lives in Chicago.
