Families is a photographic and written project in collaboration with interior stylist Karen Maj Kornum, documenting families around the world in all their shapes en forms.
The definition of what makes a family has never been so broad and Families celebrates this. Meeting people and their families, hearing their stories, capturing their moments. All while showing the many varied situations that make families today.
The project aims to effect stereotypical depiction of families with a library of images of real families in real moments.
FAMILIES - THE BOOK
Young Love is Karen Rosetzsky’s first book, and as the title would suggest, is all about... ‘young love’. The book is an eclectic mix of all sorts of different stories and people, joined together in a pattern that is Karen’s incomparably raw and emotional sense of photography. Picture after picture shows an entirely personal insight into the magical world that is ‘young love’. That all-consuming, overwhelming moment filled with tenderness and desire, when nothing else seems to matter and you appear to love to the point of madness. That’s the moment we all dream we could capture, and once gone, strive forever to relive.
Released in autumn 2015 by HALAL, the agency behind Karen, Young Love instantly received a tremendous amount of attention, far exceeding all expectations. Within weeks of being released, the book was picked up and sold by some of the world’s most renown stores, amongst them Colette and Urban Outfitters, and brands such as Topshop, Yves Saint Laurent Beauty, i-D, GQ, Jalouse, Vogue and Huffington Post endorsed it. Young Love’s success ensured the book is by now in its 3rd print run, distributed by Thames & Hudson (EU) as well as ACC (USA) and it turned Karen Rosetzsky into an internationally known, household name.
