Karen Ghostlaw is a New York visual story teller utilizing photography as her medium to engage her audience. “Between Painting and Photography” a concept developed in the 1980’s has been a catalyst for Karen’s exploration in her study of self portraiture which spans over a decade. Self exploration is a consistent thread in Karen’s work, weaving herself into complex tapestries of urban environments, synthesizing various materials and reflectivity scenarios. Karen’s extensive international travel has allowed her to expand the breadth of her Street Photography, incorporating many different cities, resulting in a vast study of self portraiture. Layers of architectural geometry, energy and movement found in these urban landscapes create new canvasses for painting with her camera.
