About Karen Robinson

Biography

mobile: 00 44 (0)7971 169275
email: karenrobinson.photo@gmail.com

I am a freelance photographer based in London.
My portraits and reportage have been widely
published in newspapers and magazines
worldwide.
From the beginning of my career my natural
interest in human rights issues led me to remote,
marginal and threatened communities all over
the world; I visited Saddam’s Iraq between the
Gulf Wars, street children in post-Ceausescu
Romania and Madhya Pradesh, India to witness
the land-rights struggle of the indigenous Adivasi
people.
I was later commissioned to document the lives
of cocoa farmers in Ghana, nomadic Arab tribes
people in Israel, subsistence farmers in Mexico,
the Inuit of northern Alaska and drought-afflicted
villagers in Tajikistan.
I was commissioned by Amnesty International,
Anti-Slavery International, Unicef and Panos
Pictures to produce a set of images on sex-
trafficked Lithuanian women in the UK and
Lithuania, highlighting that slavery is
a fact of life in modern Britain. The work was first
exhibited in St Paul’s Cathedral and is still touring
regionally.
I was commissioned by the Side Gallery,
Newcastle to produce a body of work
focusing on young women growing up in the
former mining communities of East Durham,
Northumberland. 'All dressed up' was exhibited
at The Side Gallery, Newcastle, UK

In recent years I have applied my experience and
gentle approach to commercial portraiture. I am
comfortable working unobtrusively in highly-charged
situations, such as backstage at the Southbank
Centre, or dynamically under pressure of time with
politicians and celebrities.
