Photographer #202: Karen Knorr

Karen Knorr, 1954, Germany, was raised in Puerto Rico. Her series India Song consists of two elements. The locations have been shot with a large format analogue camera, the live animals with a digital camera. The two images are combined to create one image that blurs our perception of reality and fiction. In her series Fables she draws our attention to animal behaviour and it's relationship to human behaviour and shortcomings. In most of the recent series by Karen, she uses museums, palaces or other cultural places as settings for her photography. The following images come from India Song, Muses and Majas and Fables (Ch√Ęteau Chambord).
