Hi there! I’m Kaat Zoetekouw, a.k.a. Karin Elizabeth fotografie. I’m a fine art and (self-)portraiture photographer based in the Maas en Waal region of The Netherlands.
I have a fondness for coffee and consider myself to be a proud member of the wine sisterhood. I have about 90 books on my to-be-read pile. Which is a ridiculous amount, I know. But it’s like having my own little book addict library! I used to travel a lot, before I gave up on the whole “steady income” thing to become a self-employed photographer. I do hope to be able to see more of this beautiful planet in the years to come.
My preferred elevator music? Give me some indie rock or, you know, Bruce Springsteen. Basically I love everything from electronica to jazz. But not country. No.
Finally, I like to surround myself with nature, go to concerts, write book reviews, pamper my orchids, doodle, hug my <s>boyfriend</s> husband and read interior decoration magazines (mostly because they inspire me… to clean up my house).
I blog here: www.karin-elizabeth.com and www.reading-reviewing.com.
One of my bestselling works here on Redbubble is Lake Matheson, a film photo with authentic light leak that I took while traveling around in New Zealand. / Yesterday I re-scanned the image in a very high resolution (and proceeded to spend some time cloning it to clean up dust and scratches), making it possible for me to offer more products than before now of one of my personal favorites. The sca…
Redbubble is awesome – it keeps adding new products! It’s high time that I enable some of the newer products for my more popular photos, so I’ve started working on that. I’m very fond of the studio pouches, for instance and I like the drawstring bags, too – so I’ll be sure to increase availability of these products in my shop. The pencil skirts don’t real…
Since January 2008, I’ve been working on a project involving books & photography: Reading & Reviewing is where you can see and read for yourself :) / I love books, but continued feeling a certain emptiness whenever I finished one… and learned for myself that I needed to put into words what I felt about a book and to also visually express those feelings if I could. So Reading &…
I’m going to be quite absent for a while to come; Wil and I bought a house a while back and are in the process of renovating it. Plus there’s the move itself which will take up some time. / I’m posting photos of the renovations and other house related photography at flickr, in case you’re curious to see what exactly we’ve been up to: / Honey, I’m home!
