Karl offers commercial, industrial and aerial photography, and uses the travel opportunities this affords him to collect images from around the world.
Having completed an Honours Degree in Fine Art (Photography) at Rhodes University under the guidance of renowned photographer Obie Oberholzer, Karl worked as a photographer in Johannesburg. His career path saw him veer into the corporate world of information technology and knowledge management until, in 2009, he moved to Port Elizabeth and returned to photography full time.
Karl shares Elliot Erwitt’s view that “photography is an art of observation. It has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them”. Karl invites viewers to adopt new perspectives and surprises them with the unexpected beauty of the everyday.
