About Lynn Karlin

Lynn’s move, in 1983, to a coastal Maine farm after leaving a successful career in NYC challenged her in new and exciting ways. A freelance photographer of food & gardens for magazines worldwide, she added fine art photography to her life 13 years ago. Her photographs of vegetables, flowers and other local farmers’ market finds are a natural progression. They are about the unsung heroes: the beauty of the harvest. Using natural light in her studio and her styling skills, Lynn, inspired by works of 17th-century Dutch Masters, creates still-lifes with a modern twist and palette. 

A graduate of Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, Lynn has an impressive list of employees and clients over her four decade career shooting fashion for WWD and W as the first woman staff photographer as well as photographing gardens, food and interiors for Country Living Gardener magazine, House Beautiful, The New York Times, Design New England, Garden Design and England's Garden Illustrated. Sole photographer of three award winning garden/lifestyle books, Lynn's work has appeared in numerous write-ups from the San Francisco Chronicle to The New York Times and is exhibited in galleries, private collections, restaurants and corporate headquarters world-wide.
