One should not photograph things for what they are - but for what else they are. -- Minor White
About Susan Broockman
We experience the world through our senses. We absorb, feel and radiate the scenes, scents and sounds that envelop our moments. The universe wears an infinite number of costumes. A few have been shaped by humanity, like elegant, steadfast bridges or vineyards that gracefully drape a hillside. We cannot however fashion the most profound designs, the constellations, autumn leaves, desert sands, or butterfly’s wing. We are left merely to observe them, as time changes their texture, and our own. We long for common ground as we navigate through life’s joys, challenges and mysteries.
Yet, no two people experience our layered, complex world in exactly the same way. What we see depends on who we are. It is how we see that may briefly link us in a moment of transcendence.
Susan Broockman lives in Northern California and has enjoyed photography for most of her life. Her photographs and lithographs have won national awards and are displayed in private collections as well as public venues.
