Karen Knorr, artist


Karen Knorr is a truly international artist, an American photographer born in Germany, raised in Puerto Rico and educated in Paris and London. Her beautiful, and often humorous images, explore the meaning of place, commenting on issues such as gender, class and society. Her body of work ‘Fables’ features places of social and historical importance with animals superimposed onto them so that animals appear to inhabit the very places they are not usually allowed – stately homes, temples and museums. Sensual, beautiful and often quiet funny, I love all of them.
