India Song by Karen Knorr

India Song by Karen Knorr | Backstage Rituals | Scoop.it

Artist Karen Knorr celebrates in her works the visual richness found in the fables, myths and stories of northern India, focusing on Rajasthan, by using sacred and secular sites to highlight the caste system, femininity and its relationship with the animal world. She photographed with an analogue camera interiors of palaces, mausoleums, and holy sites as well as a variety of live animals separately in sanctuaries and zoos across Rajasthan. By then combining both, she fuses high resolution digital with analogue photography.

People also wanted more detail in their photos (which a larger format would provide). In 1862, Marion & Co.  first introduced the cabinet card. Sized at 6.75 x 4.25…
