Rikki Austin (she/her) is a photographer from the sleepy foothills of northeastern Kentucky, now residing in central Ohio. Her work explores moments rooted in a strong sense of place and time, and the longing that lies within them—between the ordinary and the extraordinary, between the real and surreal, between settled spaces and unsettling feelings—in places that feel familiar and foreign at the same time. She’s passionate about highlighting the Midwest and Appalachian regions in her work and sharing their gifts with the world.
