Beach Walker Series in black and white exploring the timeless atmosphere of the ocean.

The photographs are meant to feel a bit anonymous – as the ‘subjects’ gestures appear as silhouetted profiles –  and the ‘location’ is identifiable primarily by the subtleties of the waves and sand.   The photographs are contemporary, black and white, and are intended to have an aged quality.  It’s candid, utilizing natural lighting, and the scene is just as the camera and Karen see it.

It may be a couple holding hands walking at the water’s edge, a little child playing in the sand,  someone playing fetch with their dog, or an entire family portrait.

Karen welcomes commissions.
