Karen Fox--Photographer

Born in Detroit, Michigan, Karen Fox has quickly developed a national reputation as a Photographer with a keen eye of capturing musicians within their creative space. She attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City where she received a BFA in Fashion Design/Patternmaking Technology with a minor in Photography. A professional photographer for more than 25 years, Karen was taught by her educator father Clayton Fox who bought her first camera and taught her the rudiments of photography in all kinds of settings. “Although my dad was an educator for his professional career, he actually majored in printmaking while in undergraduate school at Lincoln University. Even while he was in the military, photography was really his thing. My dad always had Nikons and to this day I’m a Nikon girl”. Fox has worked a number of high profile assignments over the last few years which includes the prestigious Detroit International Jazz Festival, The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, and the Essence Festival. She has been published by numerous periodicals which includes National Geographic Online, All about Jazz magazine as its contributing Detroit Correspondent, and online blogs which features her photos of some of Jazz’s finest musicians. They include Wynton Marsalis, Terence Blanchard, Wayne Shorter, Sonny Rollins, and Lewis Nash. Currently she is working on her first book which documents juke joints and speakeasies in the Deep South and Urban Centers.
