Preview: Katy Grannan Explores the Complicated Dynamics Between Artist and Muse

Katy Grannan describes the collaborative relationship between photographer and sitter in this preview of the upcoming “San Francisco Bay Area” episode from Season 9 of the Art in the Twenty-First Century television series.

Seen at work in her Berkeley, California studio, Grannan recalls photographing one of her frequent collaborators, Nicole. “There was a desire to have some of that glamour or a sex appeal, and then she rejected it at the same time,” says the artist. “I thought, this is closer to what I feel as a woman.”

Season 9 of Art in the Twenty-First Century premieres September 21 at 9:00 p.m. on PBS. San Francisco Bay Area airs September 28 at 9:00 p.m.
