Karen is a Leeds based photographer whose passion for capturing the idiosyncrasies of the people around her is reflected in her documentary and street practice. She invites the viewer to share her curiosity in the subjects she photographs in the context of their social and work environments and wherever possible, she seeks the active participation of the people she photographs, by involving them in the process of making and presenting images.
She works for a range of clients in the Arts and Social sectors, but she also brings a creative documentary style to her commercial practice.
Karen qualified with a first class degree in Photography from Leeds College of Art in 2014 and in 2015 was accepted onto Redeye’s Lightbox Programme. She is using this platform to explore new forms of contextual narrative, beyond conventional documentary.
