L.A. PHOTO CURATOR: ‘Certain Places’ with curator Karen Klinedinst

L.A. Photo Curator

Entry Deadline: Aug. 9

Los Angeles, CA 90068


“There are moments when I can wander through my childhood’s landscape, through rooms long ago, remember how they were furnished, where the pictures hung on the walls, the way the light fell. It’s like a film—little scraps of a film, which I set running and which I can reconstruct to the last detail.” —Ingmar Bergman

Klinedinst says, “All of us have a connection to certain places. These places can be a part of our everyday life, or places from our past. We use our selective memory when we see the places we are most connected to.

Please share images of the places you feel most connected to—interior and exterior landscapes, real and imagined.”

Karen Klinedinst is a landscape photographer based in Baltimore, Maryland. She is a graduate of the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). Her landscape photography has been exhibited widely, including: Massoni Art Gallery, Soho Photo Gallery, The Center for Fine Art Photography, Griffin Museum of Photography, and the Biggs Museum of American Art. Her work is in the collection of the National Park Service. She was a 2006 National Park Service artist-in-residence at Acadia National Park in Maine; and in 2015, was awarded an Individual Artist Award from the Maryland State Arts Council.


20% of all artist fees go to two charities a month. They’re split between the curator’s favorite charity and the first place winner’s favorite charity.

Klinedinst has selected the Sierra Club as her charity:
