Originally from New York, Lynn graduated from Pratt Institute with the goal of becoming a fine art photographer. Realizing the time it takes to pursue this option as a career, and the amount of effort it takes to market oneself, Lynn decided to change gears and try commercial work. She put all of the creative energy she would have applied to her fine art work into personalizing a style for her clients, and was awarded with accolades for her projects. Lynn has had an impressive list of employers and clients over her four-decade career shooting fashion, interiors and gardens including WWD and W, as the first woman staff photographer, as well as Country Living, NY Times Magazine, NY Magazine, HG, Coastal Living, Design New England, Garden Design and England’s Gardens Illustrated.
Lynn Karlin’s new body of work is purely personal it is about the obvious but often overlooked beauty of the harvest. "Weekly visits to photograph at the Belfast farmers market and Chase’s Daily took a new direction when I brought an amazingly beautiful purple cauliflower back to my studio and placed it on an old white pedestal by an east-facing window. The joy I got from that photograph started me on a quest to continue with my concept: honoring vegetables by literally placing them on a higher level. Two years later, I have collected more than a dozen various pedestals and have expanded my search of subjects to fruit, edible plants and flowers."
Lynn has succeeded wildly in showing her reverence for the remarkable colors and forms of the garden in this show, and "The Pedestal Series" has now brought her full circle - back to her roots. "I am now at a turning point where I am incorporating what I love best about my career and my life’s journey. These still-lifes bring together my technical skill, design background, lighting aesthetics, propping and styling experience, and a commitment to promote organic, local produce." Her images are breathtaking. They evoke, through beauty that is also sustenance, a sense of connectedness to this planet.
