Kari Wehrs is a photo based artist and educator. She received her MFA in photography from Arizona State University in the spring of 2018.
As a child, Kari spent hours flipping through her Grandmother’s family photo albums that dated from the late 1800s to the mid 1900s. The photographs were compiled neatly, often with handwritten notations, which suggested to her that they were precious objects. Wanting to see the details of each image, Kari often examined the photographs with her Grandmother’s magnifying glass. She found the idea that time could be recorded and “held” in photographs to be truly fascinating.
Kari is currently the Photography Program Chair at Maine Media College in Rockport, Maine. Prior to this, she had been associated with Maine Media since 2008 and has been a workshops instructor since 2012.
Kari has a deep interest in the techniques, technology, and history of the photographic medium. While embracing multiple methods in her own work, her most recent series is portraiture employing the 1850s wet plate collodion process (tintypes).
