Karen Rosetzsky

photographer

Karen Rosetzsky is a Danish fashion and lifestyle photographer based in Amsterdam.

Her signature of¬†extraordinarily energetic images that are filled with an abundance¬†of love, a touch of Rock ‚Äėn Roll and that feeling of belonging, has¬†made her an international household name.

In late 2015 Karen and HALAL published her very first book, entitled ‘Young Love’, which far exceeded all expectations, having been¬†sold at Colette and reviewed by GQ, Vogue and The Huffington Post, to name but a few.

Following the success of the book, Karen continues to shoot young couples around the world and launched Young Love Stories in early 2017, a website entirely dedicated to Young Love, featuring intimate interviews, fun out-takes and Young Love.

Karen’s ability¬†of being able to¬†keep¬†a¬†fine balance between depicting an honest and genuine story, letting it breathe enough for all the magic to appear naturally, yet at the same time knowing just how much direction is needed in order to equip it with that ultimate layer of heavenly light luxury, is a rare one. A fine line that Karen has perfected over the years and really made it her own.

Karen’s client list of 2016 alone¬†includes Calvin Klein, Vogue, Tommy Hilfiger, Uber, Piper-Heidsieck and Yves Saint Laurent amongst many others.
