Susannah Hays Statement


Artist Statement
We are each born at a certain instant from a seed and just as sure as the solar and lunar systems cycle around us, we inherit our ancestral lineage--the blueprint / membrane of our own being.

From the soil of our planet earth, we are given the potential to engage our human spirit in the endeavor of coming to understand our evolutionary bodies.

The photographer's role is to bring light to the invisible, comprehension to the incomprehensible.


Process Statement
The year 2013 marked a turning point in the artist's career, where invitations to teach in Israel, Germany and Venice provided time to investigate new perspectives in Landscape Photography. A departure from her previous cameraless and 19th century sun printing work, the challenge was to find a her own direction in these ancient landscapes, using digital technology.

The portfolio Nature's Writing Desk is currently in process to reflect the studies made of these landscapes. In 2014, several artist books and installations are being planned.
