"The photographer Karine Paoli was born and lives in Paris.
She is an intuitive and hyper active person. Overflowing with energy, passionate about the world and its people, she captures the moments: moments of happiness, slices of life, furtive images.
There is no place where the photographer does not pass, no new country she does not visit, no everyday moment or even no exception that escapes her sharp and singular gaze.
On the surface of her skin, rich in immense sensitivity, the artist makes us discover places we all know differently.
Through the magic of a reflection captured in a puddle or on a window, through a detail that has become the main focus, or through an extremely graphic and geometric treatment of shapes, it changes the perception of the world around us.
This artist takes a very feminine and contemporary look at a society in perpetual movement and offers us her urban and offbeat vision.
Karine Paoli is also President of the "Paris Artists" Association and Founder of the HUG ME Concept. In January 2015, Karine became the 1st Female Ambassador for the American company PNY."
