Karen Huntt

"My earliest inspiration for photography was Life magazine.  I grew up in the "Golden Age" of photojournalism, and was influenced by compelling image essays from the world's best photographers. 

"My interest in anthropology naturally has led me to document indigenous cultures, but I feel it's important to value people for the way they choose to live today, and to not expect them to be frozen in amber the way they might have been 100 years ago."

A freelance photographer and photo editor, Karen returned from two months in Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands in 2005 and is working on a book, a documentary film and an exhibit about the project, Headhunt Revisited. In addition to being a documentary and stock photographer, she is the former managing photo editor for Bill Gates' groundbreaking digital archive, Corbis Corporation, and spent many years as a photo editor for a variety of publications and design firms. Karen's most recent project, Headhunt Revisited, was featured in the April '06 issue of Smithsonian Magazine.

She was recently awarded the Scott Pearlman Field Award for Science and Exploration from The Explorers Club and is a founding member of the International League of Conservation Photographers.
