Kate Joyce studied sociology and photojournalism at San Francisco State University and, during fall 2003, worked on her Certificate in Documentary Studies through the Center for Documentary Studies. Kate is a photographer interested in the relationship between documentary processes and art. She spent seven months photographing in Chile, where she focused on female-headed households. She has also photographed in Iceland, Guatemala, Spain, and the American West.
In San Francisco, Kate was an intern for Robert Dawson, a photographer and the founder of the Water in the West Project, and photo historian Ellen Manchester.

Kate volunteered with two programs focusing on the collaboration between schools and museums, encouraging young people to explore and participate in the visual arts. With Look Again: Photography in the Classroom, she taught elementary students technical and interpretive aspects of photography through a range of hands-on outreach activities that then became part of the educational framework of each classroom. With SFMOMA Matches she was a mentor for high school students at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
