Karoline Cullen
Photographic Artist

Biography

Photography has been a lifelong passion for Karoline. Even when she was an instructor in the Kinesiology Department at Langara College, the Managing Director for Canadian Holographic Developments or founder and coach at Delta Gymnastics, photography was always a strong interest.

Now retired from all of that, she concentrates on photography and is eclectic in her choice of subjects. When spending time on Galiano Island, she loves photographing the abundant nature and wildlife there. She particularly enjoys capturing images of gymnasts and dancers with studio lighting set-ups. She continues to support Delta Gymnastics by donating her photos of gymnasts and volunteers event photography for Delta KidSport.  Karoline is Past President of the Delta Photo Club and continues to serve on its executive. She credits being active in the Club with helping her photography improve.

Her travels have spanned the globe. She is a freelance travel and feature writer, published in numerous newspapers and magazines such as Canadian Camera, Photo Life, Photography Monthly, and Northwest Travel. She also writes regularly for Travel Writers Tales, an independent travel article syndicate, and is a member in good standing of the British Columbia Association of Travel Writers. Her photos are regularly featured on the Galiano Island Chamber of Commerce brochures.

Very few days go by without her taking photos and she relishes the time she spends with a camera in her hands.

Which of my photographs is my favourite? The one I’m going to take tomorrow.” – Imogen Cunningham

 

Forest Dancer – Artist’s Statement

Dancers leave me in awe. Their ability to look as calm as a Madonna while exhibiting maximum strength, at maximum stretch is a marvel.

Taking a dancer off the stage and into a forest setting showcases her abilities in a unique way. Posing her with concrete, graffiti, and nature’s greenery gives a juxtaposition of intriguing textures and makes her serenity shine. The ease with which dancers move and pose belies the discipline and hours of training it takes to master their craft.

In my photographs, I aim to capture, with the utmost admiration and respect, the grace, strength, beauty, and poise of a highly skilled performer.
