“ Seeing life through the lens of a camera, evokes a sensitivity within to capture the soul
  and create images that bring joy and connects me to our world.”

Karin Forde Whittemore

Viewing life through the lens of a camera ignites a primal sensitivity and joy and a compelling purpose that connects me to our world. Although photography can be a means to an end, a documentation process for the photojournalist, in my world, it is a vehicle for artistic expression. My intent and desire is to capture a composition with emotion and its nuance of color, light, and texture.

My life as an artist and passion for photography actually began when at age nine I received a Kodak Instamatic camera. In recent years I have transitioned completely from film to digital photography. I successfully completed the Rhode Island School of Design’s Certificate Program in Digital Photography. My photographs have been exhibited in galleries throughout New England and are held in private collections.

As a member of of several art clubs and associations, I have had exciting opportunities to discuss photography with nationally and internationally known artists. I have served as a board member of the Mystic Arts Center as well as being on the exhibition committee and co-chair of their Alliance Art Show. 

Traveling to developing countries in the Americas has inspired me to capture the essence of wonderfully diverse cultures. I am currently working on a study of spaces, both interior and exterior. Whether inhabited or abandoned, these spaces with great character and inherent beauty, are nurturing, vibrant, and provocative.

People who know me best have come to expect to see me with camera in hand. Living by the water with beautiful panoramic vistas rejuvenates and inspires my creative soul, the driving force for my photographic imagery.
