About Catherine Karnow

Catherine Karnow Bio PhotoBorn and raised in Hong Kong, the daughter of an American journalist, San Francisco-based, National Geographic photographer, Catherine Karnow, seems destined to have travel and photojournalism at the center of her life. She graduated Brown University with honors degrees in Comparative Literature and Semiotics.

Catherine has covered Australian Aborigines; Bombay film stars; Greenwich, Connecticut high society; and an Albanian farm family. In 1994, she was the only non-Vietnamese photo-journalist to accompany General Giap on his historic first return to the forest encampment in the northern Vietnam highlands from which he plotted the battle of Dien Bien Phu. She also gained unprecedented access to Prince Charles for her 2006 National Geographic feature, “Not Your Typical Radical.”

Her retrospective: VIETNAM: 25 YEARS DOCUMENTING A CHANGING COUNTRY opened at the Art Vietnam gallery in Hanoi in April 2015 and Catherine was profiled in a PBS documentary about art in Vietnam, which aired May, 2015. Her book of the same name is available at bookstores around the world.

Her work appears in National Geographic, National Geographic Traveler, Smithsonian, French & German GEO and other international publications.

Catherine's passion for photography carries into her love for teaching. She teaches the National Geographic Weekend Workshops in San Francisco, as well as her own Weekend Workshops in the Bay Area. She also gives private workshops and teaching seminars all over the world, for a myriad of private, corporate and editorial clients, as well as her own Signature Photo Workshops in Umbria in May, and Vietnam in October.
