In addition to being featured in galleries and in books, Karen has lent her photographic skills to many corporate and not-for-profit campaigns, including Proctor & Gamble (for a campaign honouring motherhood) and The ONE Campaign, showing the successes that are occurring all over Africa in the fight against HIV/AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis and poverty.  Her images always celebrate the joy and beauty in the everyday.

Beautiful Different

To become wildly convinced the world is uncommonly beautiful, you need only stop and look -- beauty is everywhere, in the people we encounter, the nature around us, even in and around our homes.  Here is some of my favourite evidence I've collected over the years that proves I'm right -- images I captured merely because I stopped and looked.

1000 Faces

As part of my life list, I set myself the goal of taking 1000 portraits, without any agenda other than seeing if I could do it. What resulted is an ongoing body of evidence showing that everyone — every single one of us — is uncommonly beautiful.

Kenya, Sponsored by ONE

In July 2011, I travelled to Kenya with ONE, to see all the good work that the organizations for which ONE advocates  are doing to help defeat extreme poverty and preventable infectious diseases. And it was beautiful. To become a member of ONE, click here if you're located in America, and click here if you're outside the United States.  ONE never asks for your money, just your voice.

Up, Up and Away, Sponsored by Nikon

In February 2010, I decided to put together a life list: 100 things I want to do before I go. Number 67 on the list is "take a hot air balloon ride." On June 25, 2010, in Park City, Utah, I finally screwed up the courage to make it happen. Thanks to Nikon, their awesome 10-24mm wide-angle lens, and the fabulous folks at Park City Balloon Adventures, I got some amazing shots.
