About the Artist // Karen Jerzyk is a self-taught photographer from the Greater Boston area. After graduating from the University of New Hampshire with a BA in English, her parents gifted her with her first digital camera. In 2009, after nearly 10 years of working as a photographer in the music industry, she started shooting portraits of people, and ultimately decided to concentrate her focus on fine art photography. Her trademark of shooting elaborate scenes in abandoned buildings, as well as her studio, involves a laborious process of cleaning and restoration, with attention paid to even the smallest of details. Her aesthetic combination of the past and the future has lead many to describe her imagery as “future-past”. She lives and works in Manchester, New Hampshire, where she has a studio, as well as traveling the world shooting portraits in aesthetically interesting spaces.
