About Keri Douglas
“Keri brings a sensitive eye to documentary photography, managing to express the soul of distant cultures through candid portraits and compositions.”Washington, D.C. STYLE magazine
“Life is a journey filled with opportunities to find beauty. Every step you take or each glance you take at another soul – is a chance to find beauty – even in the most unusual or unexpected circumstances. That instant of recognition of beauty demands your special attention especially when light caresses a face, water dances, the clouds tell a story, a skyscraper poses in silhouette or light reveals emotions of love or peacefulness. Unexpected beauty captured on film is poetry for the eyes paying tribute to your dreams and aspirations.”Keri Douglas
Keri Douglas draws from her natural gift of finding beauty in unexpected places and in every soul who graces her path. A gift made nature by her gypsy life growing up in countries wrought in conflict or poverty, working on Holocaust issues and realizing projects for challenging international issues.
Her first “assignment” (thanks to a CNN film crew) was in the photographer’s pit along the runway of a couture fashion show in New York City with one of the first digital cameras. Afterwards, Keri’s style formed during a trip to the Grand Cayman Island, where she was drawn to the intense colors and light of the Caribbean.
Keri was inspired and influenced by the work of Alfred Stieglitz. Later she was encouraged by her mentor who told her, “You have a style. Your photographs are very much like Joel Meyerowitz.” So began Keri’s love affair with light, her camera, and a constant search for that special treasure of beauty.
Keri has shown her photographs in and around Washington, DC for over twelve years and has images in the Earth Science World Image Bank.
Keri has lived in Warsaw, New Delhi, Beirut, Athens, West Berlin, Beverly Hills and current lives in Washington, D.C. She has traveled extensively on her client’s behalf throughout Europe, Asia, Latin/South America and now has set her foot down in North Africa/the Middle East.
“As you glance at each photograph, ask – “Who are you? Where are you from? Tell me your story. Imagine. Dream. Create your own story because there is a story behind each image.”Keri Douglas
