Co-Founder, Executive Director
Detroit, MI
A visual artist and multimedia producer, Karah is Executive Director of Facing Change: Documenting DETROIT, a multifaceted documentary photo program that cultivates local emerging photography talent, hosts monthly events featuring documentary photographers from Detroit and around the world, and creates public art installations all over the city featuring images of everyday life. She has worked in collaboration with The New York Times, the VICE Creator’s Project, NPR, KCRW, the Detroit Free Press, Red Bull House of Art, the Detroit Institute of Arts and more. Karah’s long-held passion for photojournalism and documentary photography morphed into an interest in film, which led to a fortunate encounter with Atlas Industries in 2015 as associate producer of the documentary LAND GRAB. She now works with Atlas as a Co-Producer, responsible for production management, funding, and talent recruiting.
