Karin Kunzo is an artist, who works predominantly with photography, in order to trouble the social structures of everyday. Her work explores the way individuals fit in with the expected social norms and her projects often take on the form of portraiture, while dealing with themes of judgment, vulnerability and strive for perfection.
Kunzo finds her inspiration in empirical research and collaboration with ‘strangers’. She is interested in exploring vulnerability, both hers and that of her subjects’, through approaching people on the street.. By working with the camera and a set of self-imposed rules, her work takes on an experimental approach, in order to disrupt the boundaries people build around themselves and to reveal the invisible structures of everyday.
Born and raised in Slovakia, Kunzo finally settled down in Vancouver, BC. As a recent graduate of the MFA program at Emily Carr University of Art and Design, her projects continues to push against social conventions. Her works were published in several magazines, some of which which include Le Journal de la Photographie, Dodho Magazine, .tyzden, and LensCulture.
