Henry Martin: Kathleen Brennan is a photographer and filmmaker based in Taos, New Mexico. I had the good fortune to work with her on the documentary Agnes Martin Before The Grid (2016), which she directed. Brennan’s practice is diverse, and recently documentary in approach, exploring issues on the environment, as well as the preservation of cultural traditions.
