“When the soul wishes to experience something, she throws an image of the experience out before her and enters into her own image.” — Meister Eckhart
Karen Divine was first introduced to photography in the early 1970’s and went on to study painting, drawing, and alternative photographic processes. While she finds that creating a beautiful single image is crucial to being a fine-art photographer, it is the multi-image that speaks to her heart. Karen teaches at the Santa Fe Photographic Workshops, Maine Media, and Anderson Ranch as well as in India and Mexico. She has won numerous awards from many International Organizations, including the 2011 Discovery of the Year Nominee from International Photography Awards, the Julia Margaret Cameron Award for Women Photographers, the Prix de la Photographie Gold Award, and a first-place WPGA Pollux Award. Her first book “A Small Amount of Courage” won the Independent Publishers Award in 2015.
