Of her work, she states “my desire to photograph nudes was born of the water, of a passion for being in and meditating upon still waters. Wanting to make statements about human nature as I had before in portraits and street pictures, I sought a way to photograph people in water to create images of a psychological, dreamlike, and emotive nature.”
Within the beautiful setting of Georgetown Maine, Rosenthal’s workshop should be a promising venture into examining the body as image and landscape.
Karin Rosenthal's photographs of the human figure in the landscape have been published internationally with prints residing in numerous private and museum collections including the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Brooklyn Museum, Santa Barbara Museum of Art, Danforth Museum of Art, the ICP, and the Yale University Art Gallery. Her work can be seen in such major anthologies as Male Nude Now, Naked Women, and Eros.
In 2000, she published Karin Rosenthal: Twenty Years of Photographs. She has served actively on the Planning Committee for New England Women in Photography since 1995 and has taught numerous workshops.
