Masculinities at the Barbican Reopens and Summer Update

Karen Knorr continues helping to support charities such as Support in Mind (Scotland) and Artist Support Pledge initiative giving back to artists and to Artist Support Pledge itself to help it develop further projects supporting the art community.

These last weeks Karen has been working on more images from her India Song series completing a further two with two white tigers which she photographed in animal sanctuaries in India. As she puts it on her instagram account @karen1knorr  “I have been working on  of this ‘Hall of Mirrors’ in Amer Fort. Last January. It took two hours attempting to get the shot without the use of tripod no main feat with crowds pushing. I must have held my breath to steady the shot and later tried to imagine a tiger’s breath which is also a yoga position called prana  breathing where one has to be performed on all fours.”Masculinities Reopens to the Public at the Barbican in London
