Her photographic practice falls between fine art and documentary photography.  Kathy prefers to create projects or series with an idea, metaphor, or story behind them. She approaches the development of her body of work from a personal or emotional connection.  Kathy enjoys capturing the thoughtful aspects of nature, life, people, and objects.  “I strive to reflect the feelings of things in the mood of my work whether it is a portrait, abstract, still life, or landscape.”

Massi’s work has been exhibited in New York City and Long Island, including fotofoto gallery, Alex Ferrone Gallery, Guild Hall, Salmagundi Art Club, Art League of Long Island, Gallery North, Long Island Museum, Islip Art Museum, Huntington Art Center and Long Island Photo Gallery.
