She founded the organisation to create a supportive community for photographers and to provide a platform for the development of ideas and careers.
Karen is dedicated to creating fair access to photography and opening up opportunities for everyone. She’d love to see work by creative photographers who are looking for support and direction, who want to exhibit their work, develop their networks, and connect with others.
