I found myself touching each picture, running my fingertips over them as if I could feel their depth and textures with them.
I sat reading it, nodding, sighing and feeling.
Karen has a unique way of looking at the world and a gift for story telling and sharing. Through her words, her pictures and her subject's stories -- I found myself wanting to change the way that I view myself and the world. I want to look for the beautiful, take the time to find it and relish it.
I want to tell everyone about this book because everyone should see these words and images and most especially, the message.
I will be buying this book for friends and family.
Intimate and delightful, this is a book that you will dip into again and again!
The Beauty of Different was worthy of my canary-yellow highlighter. But, I couldn't do it. Not this beautiful book that will not be wedged and hidden on a bookcase. How clever to take her visual medium and intersperse it with close-ups of unique-looking people, with close-ups of flowers and arrange it in topics, such as individuality, spirituality, imperfection, anxiety, heartbreak, language, adventure and agelessness. Woven with the photography and the profiles of people exemplifying/telling a different spin on each topic, is the author's own "different" life story and insights.
