Giving Voice to the Wildness

Fresco 1

Ephemera Series by Susan Friedman

With a BA in Literature, a MFA in Film and Photography, and her background as an award winning documentary filmmaker, Susan Friedman brings a varied sensibility to her photography-based artworks. She has experimented with alternative techniques – combining photography, encaustic and book making. Walking into her open studio exhibit this past spring, we were taken with images from her Ephemera series of birds, nests and eggs. Equally impressive are her recent, poetic photographs of horses and the exquisite book she has produced from the series "Equus." Quoting from her Web site, "It is about our spirit and our sense of wildness through the image of the Horse."

Be sure to visit Susan’s Web site to see more of the Ephemera series, her Equus series of horses, and other intriguing works.
