I was shocked this morning to learn of the sudden death of my dear friend Karyn Kay. We knew each other for more than 20 years. Since 1998 I had the pleasure to work each May with Karyn and her English students at LaGuardia High School to prepare their literary journal, The Lively Arts. Karyn was a kind and generous woman, extremely devoted to her students, friends, and family. She supported me as I grew as a photographer, and she gladly offered herself as a model for my class assignments. These photos from classes long ago capture her warm spirit, and this is how I’ll remember her.
In Memoriam: Karyn Kay
