Through his photography, drawing, and physical and digital manipulations, Karim Gavins explores the perception of identity and how it shapes the world around us. His work strives to define and redefine his many identities in the hopes of finding where he truthfully belongs.

Gavins has shown his work at the Pingyao International Photography Festival in China, the International Exchange Exhibition at Keimyung University, and Rock Lititz.

In 2018 he was a finalist for Photographer’s Forum Best of College Photography, and has received PCA&D’s Promising Artist Award.
