Artsy on Escape Into Life: Karen Knorr

4 Sep

I find there is such a mystical, magical quality to the culture of India.  Such a juxtaposition of riches and poverty, exuberance and isolation.  The India Song series of photographer Karen Knorr explores the roles of power in Indian society and I find them both visually stunning and intellectually striking.  See more of Karen’s work on my Artist Watch over on Escape Into Life today!

    Interesting set. I have once come across a photographer who brought zebra from somewhere in Africa to snow covered mountain on another continent just to photograph it. The photo looked great.

      She actually digitally manipulates the animals into these!

        Oh, well that’s disappointing then.

    I just ripped some pages out of the current BHG (don’t get me wrong, I am not a decorator by any stretch of the imagination) that featured “Passage to India” color design ideas. I love the richness of the colors and “maximalist” styling.

      I am always drawn to the colors of India. Perhaps in small doses, though. But I do love looking at their over-the-top intricacies of design!

    It feels so good to see that the colors of India interest you much. It is a nation that celebrates life with vibrant colors as we, the Indians think they make life happy and enchanting. I hope u surely would have known about “HOLI” and many of you would have seen it in ESCON MATHURA. India really has huge things 2 make you all amazed and happy, other things apart!

      Thank you for commenting! I’ve just recently become familiar with Holi and find it incredibly inspiring! India does seem like such an enchanting place, full of contradictions. It is high on my list of places to see and experience.
