“Inspired By Nature,” featuring new still life photographs by Lynn Karlin will be on view at the Kingman Gallery in Deer Isle from Tuesday, June 30 through Sunday, August 2. An opening reception takes place on Sunday, July 5 from 2 to 5 p.m.
Karlin, a graduate of New York’s Pratt Institute and the first woman photographer at “Women’s Wear Daily” is already internationally known for her stunning photographs of Maine gardens. In recent years Karlin has turned to the still life, creating photographic images celebrating vegetables, fruits, and flowers that exemplify the beauty of the seasons.
She has been awarded the 7th Edition of the Julia Margaret Cameron prize in the still-life category. “Squash Blossoms,” the winning photograph from the artist’s new series, has also been selected into the juried exhibition at the Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester, Mass. In 2013 her work was featured prominently at the prestigious James Beard House in New York’s Greenwich Village. In 2014, Karlin won the 9th Annual London International Competition for still-life photography and Best of Show at the Center for Fine Art Photography.
