Kathryn Coers Rossman (website: kathryncoersrossman.com, email: hello@kathryncoersrossman.com, insta: @kathryncoersrossman) is a photographer and creative director in Bloomington, IN, USA. She studied modernism, literature and urbanism in graduate school at New York University and design and the visual arts via the New York Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) academic program. She was the official event photographer for the 2021 Kiwanis Indiana Hot Air Balloon Festival, a featured artist at the 2021 Indy Rama home design show, and Kathryn was the first Emerging Artist Grant recipient named by the City of Bloomington Arts Commission. Kathryn's "The Majorette" (2022) was included in Cerulean: A Winter Photography Exhibit by Pattern magazine. Her work has been featured in Sophisticated Living magazine and she is a contributor at Bloom magazine.

An Indiana native, Kathryn is committed to capturing the Midwest with authenticity. She will not employ gimmicks or clichés about flyover country in her work and is not seeing rural America for the first time. Kathryn is a proud Hoosier who believes in the dignity and ingenuity of her neighbors and home state. She is deeply concerned about cultural divisiveness, hopes her work is devoid of political influence and claims no political affiliation whatsoever. Kathryn feels that Midwestern stories should be told by Midwestern photojournalists. She seeks out underrepresented topics. Kathryn tries to display our inherent commonality. She believes photojournalism should be a tool to challenge, rather than affirm, our convictions.  

Kathryn is happily married and is the proud mother of a four-year-old son. Her cousin, photojournalist Michael Coers (deceased), won the Pulitzer Prize documenting school integration for the Louisville Courier Journal in 1975.
