Grannan's work has appeared in The New York Times Magazine, was included in the 2004 Whitney Biennial, and is in public collections including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and the Whitney Museum of American Art.
Her preference to photograph strangers began while she was still at Yale School of Art, when she placed newspaper adverts asking for "people for portraits".
She is influenced by the work of photographers such as Diane Arbus and Nan Goldin. A review of her 2009 London exhibition, The Westerns, described her work as "never less than intriguing" with "an otherworldliness here that sets her apart from her influences."
Katy Grannan is represented by Greenberg Van Doren Gallery and Salon 94 in New York, and Fraenkel Gallery in San Francisco. Commissions are managed by Fred & Associates.
Grannan grew up in Arlington, Massachusetts. Her father was an undertaker.
