Cindy Karp's biography:
Upon completing a Masters Degree in Photographic Communication at the University of Minnesota, Cindy began her career as a photographer for TIME Magazine, covering conflict and politics in Latin America and the Caribbean. Later, based in Miami, she photographed news, portraits, feature stories, travel and culture for diverse media such as the New York Times, People, Life, Rolling Stone, the Discovery Channel and dozens of other U.S. and international publications. She is also a photographic illustrator of books for children. She is an adjunct professor of Fine Art photography at Miami-Dade College.
Cindy was introduced to the world of wedding photography when assigned to cover weddings for the Vows section of the New York Times. She finds weddings a balance to her career as a photojournalist. Her photographic storytelling talent makes her wedding coverage unique and she is now one of South Florida's most sought wedding photographers.
Recently relocating to Palm Beach County, she teaches workshops with the Palm Peach Photographic Center. She also leads the Centre's Picture My World Program, a photography program for teens in under served communities. Their highly acclaimed exhibit, Discovering Our New World, is currently on display at the Armory Annex in Lake Worth. She believes strongly in "using photography to give a voice to the voiceless".
