Karin Kunzo works mainly in photography and video. Her work is informed by the human condition and pushes against the preconceived notions of social structures. She finds her inspiration in empirical research and collaboration with strangers. Her projects often involve approaching random people on the street and asking them to participate in her projects.
She is interested in exploring vulnerability, both hers and that of her subjects’, where rejection is part of the process. By working with the camera and a set of self-imposed rules, her work takes on a playful approach in questioning the boundaries people build around themselves.
Born and raised in Slovakia, Kunzo now resides in Vancouver, BC. Kunzo is a recent graduate of the MFA program at Emily Carr University of Art and Design. Her work was published in several magazines: Le Journal de la Photographie, Dodho Magazine, .tyzden, and LensCulture.
