SENSE-OF-PLACE TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY
Karen has trekked across live volcanoes and into rice paddies, hiked up rocky trails in a monsoon, taken more than her share of wrong trains and buses, and charmed or stumbled her way into places where visitors rarely go.
She has explored burial grounds and street markets, followed parades (and jumped into a few) and delights in the opportunity to experience cultural rituals around the world.
She has missed breakfasts to capture early morning mists, and dinners to be ready for that perfect cobalt sky moment beyond sunset, when the world is not yet black with night. Karen's gift is the ability to capture in a milisecond the story-behind-the-story; the spirit and soul of the moment.
