Lynn is an internationally published photographer. Originally from New York City, she was the first woman staff photographer for Women’s Wear Daily and W. Her editorial assignments included: House Beautiful, Country Living, The New York Times Magazine and New York Magazine. Since 2008, she has added fine art photography to the mix and her still-lifes hang in galleries, design shops and private collections world-wide.
Her move in 1983 to a farm on the coast of Maine previously owned by famous back-to-landers and authors Helen and Scott Nearing led to her classic book, “Maine Farm, A Year of Country Life”, published by Random House. Later came “Gardens Maine Style” featuring some of the most beautiful gardens in Maine; “Gardens Maine Style ll” followed.
Karlin continues to win prestigious awards and has been featured in The New York Times, San Chronicle and London’s Sunday Telegraph. A 2024 fine art calendar of images will be published by Weingarten in Germany and available this year at booksellers in Europe and on Amazon.de. Fall 2023, the French magazine Jeux Délices will feature a selection from Karlin’s body of work.
