(b. 1992, Huddersfield, UK) Caitlin is a photojournalist and member of Juntos Photo Cooperative based in the Sonoran Desert on Piipaash and O’odham land (Phoenix, Arizona). She studied Journalism at Indiana University in Bloomington and Korean Language at Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea. She aims to create accountable relationships with people over long-term documentary work. She is collaborating with the Kahn family to recount their responses to a rare disease diagnosis.
She speaks Spanish slowly and Korean really slowly and is working to improve these skills. O'Hara is a practiced marathoner and a practicing jiujiteira (but jiu jitsu is paused during the pandemic).
In 2020, O'Hara has photographed the impact of further militarization of the U.S. border on O'odham land and eviction in Phoenix during the COVID-19 pandemic. Juntos published a manifesto urging independent image makers to stand in solidarity with one another to advocate for their safety and contributed to authoring the Photo Bill of Rights.
