The Ineluctable Necessity of Self-Promotion


By Matthew Thomas Meade

My name is Kim Ziegelmayer and I’m a photographer. I’m a student at Arizona State (Go Sun Devils!) and I recently won The Anna Harper Stoneman Prize for exceptional photography. I am really honored to have my pictures featured here in Caged Bird Quarterly. I hope to one day travel the world and take pictures of the places I visit.

Kim Ziegelmayer now knows that these bios are supposed to be in 3rd person and wishes someone had told her that earlier. She likes eating ice cream when she’s sad, drinking wine when she’s happy, and taking pictures of what is going on around her. Her photographs have appeared in Caged Bird Quarterly and she has won The Anna Harper Stoneman Prize for exceptional photography.

Kim Ziegelmayer became interested in taking pictures when she was a little girl and her grandfather gave her a camera for Christmas. Her work has appeared in Caged Bird Quarterly, Sweetwater Annual, and she has won The Anna Harper Stoneman Prize for exceptional photography. She dreams of traveling to and photographing locations in Europe, Asia, the Americas, and elsewhere.

Kim Ziegelmayer started taking pictures as a little girl when her grandfather taught her to use a Canon AE-1. Since then she has majored in Visual Arts at Arizona State, won The Anna Harper Stoneman Prize for exceptional photography, and her work has appeared in a number of magazines and newspapers. You can find her on the internet at KimZiegelmayerPhotography.com.

Paris-based photographer Kim Ziegelmayer draws inspiration from her everyday surroundings. She is interested in how people cope with their daily challenges. She eschews sentimentality as well as gritty reality. Her work explores themes of family and loss, home and alienation, place and displacement, and the dignity of maintaining composure in the face of crushing opposition. She is drawn to tableaus that have a subtle sense of strangeness and whimsy. Kim earned her BA from Arizona State University where she received The Anna Harper Stoneman Prize for exceptional photography. She has since had her work featured in arts magazines, newspapers, and various advertisements, most of which are available under the portfolio tab. A collection of her early work entitled Well Lit will soon be available from
St. Martin’s Press.

Feel free to comment and thanks for visiting.

Kim Z. is sick of writing these bios. She thinks they are stupid and when she reads other people’s bios she decides beforehand if she is going to like them. She tends to see what she wants in other people's bios. If she likes the work, she uses the bio to help her imagine this really cool, sensitive, and deserving person, and if she doesn’t like the work she uses the bio as evidence that the artist is an awful person. She’ll think, "Oh he lives in Milwaukee and fixes old cars in his spare time? Figures..." One thing you should know about Kim Ziegelmayer, however, is that she owns a dog.

Kim Ziegelmayer is interested in deconstructing the concept of bios.

Just like everyone else, Kim Z. wants her bio to be interesting.

Kim Z. wuz here.

Kim Z. is a Pinhead.

Kim Z. is a coward.

Kim Z. bristles at the notion of a bio because she is quite private (which is maybe why she is more comfortable behind the lens of a camera to begin with).

Kimberly Elaine Ziegelmayer uses her first, middle, and last name, not because she is pompous, but because there are more Kim Ziegelmayers out there than you'd think. She knows this because she does a lot of Googling. She also takes pictures sometimes.
