PRLog - Sep. 9, 2012 - CHICAGO -- The International Photography Awards announced that Chicago-based photographer Karen I. Hirsch has won an honorable mention for a series of four abstract images.  The winning images in the series "Architectural Geometrics" were created from Hirsch's original photos of architectural structures. She then transformed the photos digitally to produce the final results.

Karen I. Hirsch is an award-winning commercial, editorial and fine art photographer based in Chicago, Illinois. She “tells the story” with her editorial images and her sense of graphic design and awareness of color and composition carries over to her fine art creations. She  makes abstract images with her camera as well as through digital interpretation in the computer.

In 2003, the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs asked Hirsch to do a one-woman show at the Richard J. Daley Civic Center in honor of Chicago’s “birthday.”. She displayed more than 200 of her Chicago images of Chicago’s people, places and events.  In 2007, the Chinese government invited Hirsch along with nine other photographers to produce images of Rizhao for a special project to attract tourism and business to that city.

Hirsch’s  photos are found in corporate and private collections.

Hirsch is a member of the American Society of Media Photographers and immediate past president of Fort Dearborn-Chicago Photo Forum
