Kara Souza is a film photographer based in New York. She is originally from Waianae, HI.


She transitioned from photographing nature in North Carolina to portraits and fashion stories in New York.

Through image-making, she translates her memories and most vivid dreams into snippets and snapshots of raw storytelling with themes of singularity and strength. In contrast from this fast paced digital age we live in, shooting with film allows her to radiate a stillness into her images, breaking the barrier between subject and viewer.


Selected clients include NIKENYC, Saint Heron, The Break Vintage, MUSENYC, and CHRIS HABANA. 

Selected publications include Tissue Magazine, Ramona Magazine, NikeNYC Online, Drunk Magazine, and Revista Flatra Vol. 51
