[ABOUT] THE MIND BEHIND THE MISSION
After a decade working around the globe as a fashion model, the ambitions of Katarina Benzova finally outgrew the runway, prompting a deeper need to rediscover both herself and the rest of the world from the other side of the lens.
Kat started her professional career in photography as the tour photographer for Guns N’ Roses in 2010, and has since become one of the most sought after rock photographers in the world, working with legendary musicians, including AC/DC, Aerosmith, KISS, Def Leppard, Whitesnake, Ozzy Osbourne, Anthony Kiedis, Courtney Love, and countless other household names.
Recently named Leica’s newest Ambassador, Kat has presented her work in numerous exhibitions worldwide including at Cannes Film Festival, and in the KISS exhibition alongside legends Neil Preston, Bob Gruen, and Lynn Goldsmith. Her fine art prints are available through the legendary Morrison Hotel Gallery and The Rock Photography Museum.
Her work can be seen in ads for Maserati, Gibson Guitars, Fender, Monster Energy, Leica Camera, Live Nation, and Hard Rock Hotels, and in some of the most prominent publications including LIFE Magazine, Rolling Stone, Vogue and Billboard.
Kat is an adventurer and world traveler and has parlayed her documentary skills both in print and film. Her documentary Revolución and published book of the same title takes place in Cuba, telling the story of one of the first American bands to play in the country, The Dead Daisies. She was also part of a documentary team that worked on a film about Andaman and Nicobar Islands in India. Kat is a philanthropist and believes in leveraging her creativity to help organizations create a bigger impact. She worked with Nelson Mandelas Foundation : Legacy Of Hope, DoVE Project, The Heroes Project, NAMI, Animals Asia, Janie's Fund, Surfrider Foundation, Wolf Conservation Center, My Sister's Place Foundation and many others.
"Through Mission11, I will support organizations that generate impact in raising consciousness and awareness in programs that nurture our planet — making sure next generations will be able to enjoy our precious home.
We are collectively over 7.5 billion human inhabitants sharing this same lifetime together. Throughout my life, I’ve watched as life on our planet has become increasingly more fragile and used to think — I’m just one person, how do I make a change?
But then I remembered what Mahatma Gandhi said,
Through this project, I hope to start being that change. With the power of photography, art, strong social campaigns, and undying motivation to make an impact, we can stand up and bolster the organizations fighting for this planet.We can all become better caretakers, guardians, and servant leaders.”
