Karyn is a photographer who uses portraiture, documentary, and conceptual photography to explore themes of identity, specifically in parenthood and childhood. 

With a background in geology and education, Karyn seeks to understand how people connect with their natural and human made environments. 


She lives with her family in a suburb of Boston, MA.  She loves to read but struggles to find the time so, she fills that void with podcasts, lots and lots of podcasts.
