Karen Rosetzsky

photographer

Karen Rosetzsky is a Danish fashion and lifestyle photographer based in Amsterdam. Karen’s signature has made her a household name internationally – combining an abundance of love with a touch of rock ‘n’ roll, and a tonne of energy.

In late 2015 Karen and HALAL published her first book, ‘Young Love’, which documented young lovers around the world. Its magnetic portrayal garnered much attention, praised by Vogue, The Huffington Post and GQ, amongst others, and stocked at Colette and Urban Outfitters.

Karen’s ability to depict the true story while letting it breathe enough for the magic to appear – then give just the right amount of direction – has been honed over many years into a rarity of unmeasurable worth.

Karen’s client list includes Calvin Klein, Vogue, Tommy Hilfiger, Uber, Piper-Heidsieck, Yves Saint Laurent, Asos, The Kooples, Absolute Vodka and Schweppes, amongst others.
