Five Questions: Karen Jerzyk

Five Questions - Karen Jerzyk

Karen Jerzyk is a photographer whose trademark is photographing elaborate scenes in abandoned buildings. Her work is often wildly colorful and dynamic and creates a sense of surrealism and chaos with meticulous detail. 

Karen kindly invited me to her studio where she was designing a set for her latest work. The place was full of antique pieces, dismembered mannequins, old paintings, and photography gear. We chatted about not fitting in, struggling to find artistic voice, favorite filmmakers, and her father's battle with stroke and its affect on her work. Oh yeah, and she answered Five Questions. Meet Karen.
