Karly Domb Sadof (b.1989) is an internationally published photojournalist, visual anthropologist, and national desk photo editor at the Associated Press's global headquarters in New York City. Karly’s work has appeared in numerous publications including: The Associated Press, The Boston Globe, The International Herald Tribune, The New York Times, National Public Radio, Time Magazine, and The Washington Post. She has also photographed commercially for a variety of fashion, event, and portrait clients.
Upon graduating with Honors from New York University's Gallatin School of Individualized Study with a B.A in Visual Anthropology, Karly received a university grant to fund a postgraduate photography exhibit and visual ethnographic study of a Diaspora of day laborers in a struggling suburb of New York City. Her work will be on exhibit at The Perfect Exposure Gallery in Los Angeles in the Fall of 2011.
Karly believes in the power of photography to create dynamic visual artifacts that inspire and evoke emotion from the viewer and encourage social understanding. Karly also plans to someday camp under the Aurora Borealis, spend a summer in the Sahara, find a secret garden, and swim with her eyes open. In October 2010 Karly was invited to attend the Eddie Adams Photojournalism Workshops in New York and previously was awarded a Gallatin Dean’s grant to attend the Visual Journalism Workshops in California, which explored photography’s role in the changing mediascape.
