Karen Glaser

Trekking waters from the magnificent Everglades through the pristine rivers and springs of north central Florida, Karen Glaser uses her camera to capture the abundant beauty found within Florida’s natural ecosystems.

In a world where untouched landscapes are rare, her “Springs and Swamps” series focus on what lies beneath the glassy surfaces, and what is reflected upon them. Like a street photographer observing and documenting a city’s everyday occurrences with a serene and sometimes surrealistic eye, she captures garlands of Spanish moss spiraling from grandaddy oaks while the gar sprint together among the reeds.

On view in the Balcony Gallery for Florida Artists, this exhibition features over 30 large-scale photographs. “The photographed landscape melds into the fluidity of water,” said Glaser, who resides in Florida’s Suwannee River Basin.
