Two Way Lens and Karen Halverson

Two Way Lens proudly presents Karen Halverson.

I am very happy and excited that I could add another great interview with an outstanding photographer to my Two Way Lens project.

Hudson River Valley, NY based photographer Karen Halverson started photographing in the streets of New York with a Nikon F and a 35mm lens. This was the beginning of a new identity for her and a passion for photography she has never lost. 

A long car trip she had taken as a child through the American West established a strong connection to the West she's felt ever since. 

Since then, she has been exploring various aspects of the cultural and natural landscape of the West.

Karen Halverson's work has been collected and exhibited by many prominent museums including  the J. Paul Getty Museum, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Los Angeles Museum of Modern Art, The Santa Barbara Museum of Art, the Smithsonian American Art Museum and many more.

Please visit Karen's website to see more of here outstanding work.

The very insightful interview with Two Way Lens can be found here.

The Lake, Unplugged

The Lake, Unplugged is my newest body of work.

Located near the magical castle Neuschwanstein is the fifth largest lake in Bavaria with a surface area of 15.2 sq. km. (9.45 sq miles)

Forggensee is known primarily as a tourist destination for aquatic sports and recreation. The lake provides ideal conditions for surfing, sailing, fishing, and boating. it is stocked with pike, trout, and eel. Two ships navigate the lake on two different routes.

But there is something very unique about this lake.

Please visit my website to see more photos of the new series and read the statement about The Lake, Unplugged.
