About Karina

I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina but I grew up in different countries of South America where I attended most of my school years and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences. Working in South America as a pharmacist was an amazing experience, but after moving to the United States I was already starting to change my mind about many things, including my personal approach to restoring health and curing illness, so ultimately I found that being a pharmacist was not a fulfilling path for me anymore.

I have always been a lover of art and all forms of self-expression, so when faced with the decision of a career change, I decided to explore photography and I have not looked back since! I have a raw and genuine passion for capturing the world and its fascinating inhabitants through my lens, and for telling stories with my images that will endure the passage of time.

I am a firm believer in the ideology that no matter who you are, your happiness lies in dedicating your work to the purpose of healing the world, and that’s why I am a photographer. Photography is what keeps my world in orbit.

My influences include Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Doisneau. I prefer a style that is candid and elegant, and is guided by the belief that a photographer should transform the viewer into the original observer. My challenge in every assignment is to be able to capture not only a moment in time, but also the right emotion to make the viewer grasp the entire experience through just a simple glimpse.

I am a free spirited girl, a world traveler, a Buddhist and a yogi, a bad cook but a fabulous dancer, a lover of physics, goats, and fine scotch, an aspiring writer who loves solitude, but most importantly and first on my list of priorities, an inspirator and a seeker of truth.
