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

Connoisseurs Print Available To Support Two Charities
During this crisis it is easy to acknowledge that working from home and lockdown can and does cause stress and hardship of varying levels. Imagine then what it must mean for those who have no home or those for whom home is an unsafe space.
Covid-19 takes no hostages and right now the charities Crisis and Refuge are working hard to support the people in our society who have no home and who are the victims of domestic abuse, for whom this virus has made their situations so much worse.
Artist Sian Bonnell, Artist/Printer Charlie Meecham and Producer Tracy Marshall – members of arts collective TRACE – have harnessed the energy, generosity and goodwill of their photography friends & colleagues to produce an online art fair offering affordable work by international photographers in aid of the two charities.
Punks Print Available With Profits Going To The Trussell Trust
Inspired by the monumental success of the Italian 100 Fotografi per Bergamo initiative and the New York-based Pictures for Elmhurst, Photographs for The Trussell Trust are getting together a photographic print sale fundraiser here in the UK.
100% of the profits will go towards the Trussell Trust, which provides support to 2/3 of the food banks nationwide, helping those who have been largely affected by the economic and social crisis as a consequence of the Covid-19 health emergency.
The Covid-19 pandemic has had a swift and devastating impact on the ability of vulnerable people to access sufficient food. Three weeks into lockdown, The Food Foundation said that 1.5 million Britons reported not eating for a whole day because they had no money or access to food.
Food banks have seen 300% increase in footfall compared to this time last year and desperately need our support in this time of social crisis.
A step change for all arts organisations and institutions to commit to exhibiting, commissioning, publishing and collecting at least 50% women’s work.
Inclusivity leading to all arts events and activities to address a minimum of 50% of women’s interests and stories.
The education system to recognise and value women artists and photographers, and the role they play in society, in their curricula at every level of the system and to provide equal opportunities for female artists and photographers to take part and enrich their curricula.

Anna Fox and KarenKnorr, two of Britain’s leading documentary photographers, have constantly pushed the envelope when it comes to what photography can accomplish and what constitutes the documentary style. Playing with notions of authenticity and the truth, they skillfully use humour and satire to comment on the social structures that underpin our relationships with each other, our histories and the world around us. In this conversation, they come together to discuss their approaches to the medium, their individual work and their collaborative projects, with a special focus on their experiences in India and its influence upon their practice.
