Karen Perlmutter is an award winning Photographer living in Toronto, Canada. She is a graduate of the Ontario College of Art, and was a resident of the Banff School of Fine Arts. Upon graduation, Karen worked as a photo assistant to Photographer Ken Bell.
Karen spent 15 years meticulously Photographing The Pino Christmas Series, which is housed in the Bibliothèque National in Paris, France.
Karen opened her first commercial Photography studio 38 years ago. “I’ve had a very exciting career, with a particular emphasis in portrait photography. I have also travelled throughout Mexico, France and Italy, photographing landscapes and street scenes for Solo Exhibitions. The texture and detail of the scene is where my inspiration lies. I still shoot film, and my signature camera is a plastic toy camera. I love the quality of film; each type of film rendering a different mood and emotion to the subject. I work with intention, accentuating the fine details of each shot."
