Born in Miami, but raised in Canada and Sweden, Kitra earned her BA in Philosophy from McGill University and her MA in Visual and Media Anthropology from the Freie Universitat in Berlin. As a documentary photographer, Kitra embeds herself in communities around the globe, often for years at a time, in order to learn the language of her subjects.

Her work has been featured on the cover of National Geographic and the New York Times.
