Karen Eikrem (20) is a Norwegian photographer based in Kristiansand, Norway.

At the moment she studies Communication & Mediaproduction at the University of Agder.

I guess I’ve always liked taking pictures, and I got the interest from my dad. In 2017 I got to take pictures at the Molde International Jazz Festival and after that the interest just got bigger and more serious.

Now, my interest is in concert photography and portraits. Taking pictures of different musicians is difficult at times, but that makes it even more fun – you have to be there at the right moments, no second chances.

When it comes to portraits I take pictures of my friends and family. This is where the «storytelling» part comes in – reflecting other peoples moods and stories through a lens, it’s difficult because you want to do it right.
