Participate in a Project from Emily Carr


Karin Kunzo Artist in VancouverHello. My name is Karin Kunzo and I am a photographer living in Vancouver. I moved here from Berlin and I am currently finishing my Masters at Emily Carr University. I am working on a project that I would need some help with. I am searching for people that were born in Germany.

The idea is to combine a portrait with a yearly salary earned by that person. This is a social critique, commenting on the absurdity of not being able to discuss one’s salary that I have experienced while living in Germany. I would be most grateful for any help.

I focus on social critique. I make concepts with social impact. My models are always real people. I focus on building relationships with people, collaborate with them in order to convey something about our society.

You can see my project, Girl in the Mirror, where I work with women in public bathrooms, while they are looking at themselves in the mirror. This project deals with the themes of social pressures put on women to look beautiful.

The project would be shown in my university and may be published in a photography publication.
