Aker Imaging Photo Lab and Gallery says
Aker Imaging Gallery is excited to present Kathryn Rabinow, a Houston based artist whose previous career was in academe. She has undergraduate degrees in psychology and education and a doctorate in education with a focus on social change and desegregation. Rabinow served on the graduate faculties of Harvard University, Seton Hall University and the University of Houston. She is a Life Board member of The Children's Museum of Houston and was on the Founding Board of the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft. Rabinow's work as a psychologist, educator and observer of the human condition has greatly influenced her artistic career. Her work is hung in private and corporate collections around the country as well as in permanent installations including the Federal Reserve in Washington DC and the ERJCC in Houston.

For years she used technology to manipulate her photos and turn them into abstracts Rabinow focused on 'what could be' rather than on 'what is'. For this 2017 exhibition Rabinow captures what is actually there and presents the images in a pure form to the viewer.
The show, Sines, Cosines and Tangents, focuses on signs we see as we go about our daily lives. As an educator Rabinow knows that there is a great difference between 'seeing' and 'looking and focusing'. She encourages the viewer to take a good look at the actual and unaltered photographs of the signs; to pause a moment to think about possible multiple meanings, to laugh aloud at their incomprehensibility or sheer silliness.
A tangent is defined as something diverging from an original purpose or course. The color images in this current show truly do diverge from Rabinow's original focus on the black and white signs [sines and cosines] that help us navigate our lives. The large images (tangents) provide an opportunity not to merely navigate our lives but rather to expand them with beauty,
dreams and secret stories.
