Karen-Bio-Image

photo by: Ozzie Hoppe
I began my photography career in Mumbai before moving to the United Arab Emirates in 2007 to work as a Staff Photojournalist for the national daily Gulf News. In 2009, I was one of the selected photographers from Asia to participate in the Angkor Photography Workshop in Cambodia. Since 2013, I have been working as an independent documentary photographer based between Mumbai and Goa. A majority of my work focuses on stories about women and the environment. In 2016, I was awarded a grant by the IWMF to produce a photo story about sportswomen in Haryana, north India. Besides English, I speak Hindi, Marathi and Konkani. My work has been exhibited in India, United Arab Emirates and Indonesia.
